It looks and sounds beautiful, and we’re very excited. You can buy it using the links on the right. It’s also available for download on Amazon and all good MP3 sites.

Our CD is on sale tomorrow!

Our CD will be available to buy on this website from tomorrow! We’re very pleased with it, and we think it breaks new ground in the genre of vegetable-cultivation-based musical comedy.

It will be available on all good download sites either tomorrow or shortly afterwards, we’re told.

Potato present

Normally audiences bring vegetables to a show for only one reason – to throw them at the performers. So imagine my delight when I was presented with this bag of homegrown potatoes as a lovely gift after our performance today. These are genuine allotment potatoes nurtured in Scottish soil by the sister of the […]

Carrot earrings!

Dan’s lovely wife Amy managed to find me the perfect good luck gift – these amazing carrot earrings. Dan nearly forgot to give them to me, probably because he was so focused on making our first show a success. Well, dear readers, I am glad to say that his focus paid off and the […]

The joy of sacks

We’re on our way!

Dan and I are on the same train to Edinburgh. However, I am in first class and Dan is in third class, I think. While I have been enjoying free coffee, booze and food, Dan has probably been eating dust and drinking the tears of all the crying babies in his compartment. I am […]

Cream of the crop

Jo’s prize-winning allotment cake

Behold my award-winning allotment cake, which not only won FIRST PRIZE for “overall appearance and originality” but was also judged OVERALL WINNER of the large cakes section at my friend’s village fete-themed wedding. One of the songs in Can You Dig It? is about a man who will go […]
