One worth a watch here; this team are always educational and entertaining in a gentle and rustic sort of way. The first episode (13 November) amongst many interesting things included Robin Wood - an occasional contributer here - turning a bowl by pole lathe.

Ah yes - I thought he was good last week. We did have a bit of a laugh though, as one of the presenters said 'We've only got a few days to get the peas sown, or we won't get a harvest and we'll starve.' One of my family said 'hang on - didn't they say that on the Wartime farm programme...and the Edwardian farm programme?'

I haven't seen any of this series but it was watching Alex Langland on The Victorian Farm that inspired me to take up beekeeping.

We had a brilliant day visiting Acton Scott (where the Victorian Farm was filmed) last year. It was a day when the charcoal makers were at work, so it was evocatively smoky. Loads to look at, and one ofthose places which you remember. Over the border into Shropshire from here; just past Ludlow

I enjoyed this week's episode.  Lots of homemade doing - making lime putty, lye for laundry, etc.  Good stuff.

Now, this photo looks just like it could be a scene from those times:

But no - it is my friend Simon and his horse John, just last week, harrowing in his hand-sown winter wheat !
