Low Flying Rabbit Cliffhanger

This week The Team gather to talk about Buzzards and Short Eared Owls and the costs of set-aside. Richard learns about Twitter and tries to describe his latest trip to the River Cottage in less than 15 seconds. Then they try to test the moisture content of Phil's wheat, but run out of time.

Wiggly Podcast 171 is LONG!

By Heather 11 years ago

They are usually pretty cheery but here's the blurb for this week's show!
"It's the longest Wiggly Podcast so far and everyone is feeling gloomy. Richard and Farmer Phil re-convene to follow up their discussion of banned pesticides, but another row starts to brew, so Heather demands that it be faded out. There's plenty of feedback from Podchef, but he's not taking sides. The cow crisis is deeper and more complicated than thought, Richard's cockerel has been goosed to dead and his dog has gone deaf, Toast has a terrible itch, another prize cow has died and someone has forgotten to plant their garlic.
At least Monty has a cheerful Montycast."
Never mind here is one of our our latest reviews on iTunes:
5 stars - A Breath of Fresh Air by Belsfurry.Of all the podcasts I subscribe to yours is the one that I just can't wait to download each week. I Love it, though my husband (who has only listened to it once) thinks its a bit crazy. Its a great mixture of fun, information and practical tips brought to you by a great bunch of people who are passionate about the environment and the planet we live on. Keep up the good work Heather and the team - you are a breath of fresh air!
Thanks Belsfurry

An apple a day keeps the doctor away!

By Heather 11 years ago

It’s a celebration of the humble apple today from the Wiggly sofa. Rachel Harries reports for this week’s show from a Herefordshire orchard where she has been learning about (and sampling) old varieties of apple, some of which are very rare. You can read up about all sorts of orchard news on the England in Particular web site.

Richard confesses to Farmer Phil that he has allowed a visiting group to scrump all the apples from the Wiggly garden and Rachel demonstrates the amazing apple peeler and corer.

Richard also tells us all about the little grown vegetable salsify and what you can do with it.
