Welcome to the 3rd anniversary edition of the Wiggly podcast. Richard is outside his house, enjoying one of the only balmy evenings of the year, watching house martins preparing to return to Africa.
Farmer Phil explains that harvest time this year is proving to be a bit of a challenge and not helped by his chums at DEFRA!
We are pleased to welcome back Rachel Harries who will be with us until Christmas and has been assigned several tasks, including coming up with interesting facts about products and tweaking the Wiggly web site.
And last, but not least, don‚Äôt forget the Terry and Ricardo special, ‚ÄúDefinitely not Gardeners‚Äô Question Time‚Äù at Preston-on-Wye Village Hall at 7.30 pm on 10 October 2008. The ticket price is ¬£10, which includes a glass of mulled cider and a light supper. The profits from this event will be shared between St. Michael's Hospice and the Bobath Centre (for children with Cerebral Palsy).
