I was just wondering if any of the UK Cuties are watching the BBC's Great Allotment Challenge? It's a bit like The Great British Sewing Bee but the contestants are sowing instead. The idea is that couples are given a standard allotment in which they grow a variety of produce (fruit, vegetables and flowers) and are faced with a variety of challenges. So far we have had show quality radishes, growing sweet peas for show and the production of a bouquet, and making jams and curd. The downside is that Fern Britten is presenting it! Happy days.

I wish I could see this. I am doing a garden after about 15 years of not having a garden.

I think she has enough to do dealing with the harvested goodies! I remember only too well the 45kg of redcurrants my husband once surprised me with when he had an allotment.
