For your listening pleasure, we present the 27th August edition of BBC Radio Scotland's Grassroots programme. When we were first approached about featuring in the show we expected it to be a 5 minutes slot, but it turned out we were the show. All I can say is the skill is most definitely in the editing...

Dear Rosemary and Dan, I have just heard your contribution to the Grassroots programme, which went out on R. Scotland. It was excellent, full of enthusiasm, lots of interesting facts, nice comments and Nancy Nicholson could not find fault with anything. One question though. Do you kill and eat your own chickens? I got the answer about how good the eggs taste, but I think that Dan somehow avoided answering that question.I am waiting to know if the Xmas cake recipe is for 2 cakes or 1? I sent you an email, but with so many coming in I can understand why taking the time to answer them is quite a task. I have just got back from my allotments where I planted the rest of the Autumn Bliss raspberries, a white and a red currant some garlic I bought in Condom in Armagnac, France when I was there 2 weeks ago, and some allium bulbs, which will bring colour to the vegetable bed in the spring. Best wishes to you both and please keep up the good work. From Lawrence.

Glad you enjoyed the programme. We don't raise chickens for the table yet, but we do now own an incubator and fully intend to start using it, and raising (and killing) our own table birds in the spring. Full colour coverage to follow!
