Podcast 61 - Show Notes

Farmer Phil comes to the fore this week as he reports on harvesting, finally, his first crop of English Sunflowers. His second report is an update on the debacle that is the government's handling of the single farm payments scheme, this time from the perspective of his bank manager. There's even some feedback on eating squirrels, from food writer Rosemary Moon. Alison drops in to talk about the Plant of the Week, Buckthorn, although it doesn't have any thorns! Also, Rachel uses the Farm Phone to 'phone in: you can too, just dial 01981 500930 and leave your comment for the show.
