There‚Äôs a bit of a windy theme running through this week‚Äôs show. Normally ‚Äústinky‚Äù Farmer Phil is on the ‚Äúother‚Äù sofa and he‚Äôs got some further info about the results of the Rothamsted Research Station trials, as requested by listener Christine.
Heather has recently been in London on a course and got the chance to chat to Graham Wynne, the Chief Executive of the RSPB, who has a wish list that includes farmers using hay instead of silage and planting in spring instead of winter. We find out exactly why this is so important for birds.
The lettuce saga continues and this time Richard is giving Heather a potting up lesson. That is, after he eventually manages to break his way into the compost bag, during which time Heather manages to get in a bit of piano practice!
