Theft on the Allotment

In a more sombre segment, I discuss a distressing incident where someone stole four of my raised beds from the allotment. It's heart-breaking to see the fruits of your labour taken away, but I'm determined to rebuild and secure my garden better. I share my thoughts on how to prevent such incidents and the steps I'm taking to protect my allotment in the future.

Chef Scott’s Recipe of the Week: Roasted Cabbage

This week's mouth-watering recipe comes from Chef Scott, who teaches us how to prepare roasted cabbage. This simple yet flavourful dish is perfect for any meal. Be sure to check the link in the episode description for the full recipe and step-by-step instructions.

Harvesting Early Wight Garlic

As we approach the end of the episode, I talk about my success with the early Wight garlic. I explain how to tell when garlic is ready for harvesting and share tips on recognising the signs that other varieties are ready as well. Harvesting garlic at the right time ensures the best flavour and longevity, so you won't want to miss this segment.
