Where have we been?

Our ambition is to tour Can You Dig It? to every county in the UK.

Oh grow up!

I visited the amazing GrowUp Box today where they grow salad and fish using aquaponics. Basically the fish poo in some water and bacteria make that into food for the salad, which eats the nutrients and in turn helps purify the water, which goes back to the fish for them to poo in again. […]

Bath buddies

Look! I’m not the only one growing things in old baths. This bath is one of the many original containers in use as planters at the fantastic Spitalfields City Farm, which is kindly lending us some props for our Chelsea Fringe show. The farm is abundant with fruit, veg and herbs, some of which […]

Bunny peculiar

Can you tell what it is yet? Actually, maybe I shouldn’t use that catchphrase any more but never mind… This is my first attempt at the noble art of topiary. If you haven’t guessed then it is supposed to be a rabbit (this is the good side). I think it is quite cute. I […]

Carrot bed bath

This is my new carrot bed/bath. I am going to attempt to grow several different types of carrot in it including exciting “obtuse” yellow carrots. Apparently when it comes to carrots obtuse means they have rounded tips and not that they are stupid. We shall […]

Fame at last

Not only are Dan and I now national celebrities after featuring on Gardeners’ Question Time, but we have also made it into my local newspaper under the excellent local newspaper headline: “Comics turn in Eurovision hit that is no turnip.” It was very exciting to hear our songs on GQT this afternoon. If you […]

We go on Gardeners’ Question Time!

We had a very exciting day yesterday, recording some of our songs for BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time! We did a short set of some of our material in front of the GQT panel and audience when the programme came to Hoxton Hall as part of the Chelsea Fringe. Naturally, we performed some […]

Heathcliff! It’s he, he’s come home…

It is definitely Spring as my gnome Heathcliff has come out of the shed to stand guard over my crops. He was pleased to discover that gnomes will be allowed into the Chelsea Flower Show for the very first time this year. He’s planning on going.

Gnomes will also be popping up at the […]

Seeds of inspiration

We’re not the only people who manage to combine a love of vegetables with a love of music. This is our friend Paolo, from the excellent seed company Franchi Seeds of Italy, who hosted an “accordion open day” at his company’s base near my house on Friday. Paolo collects and restores vintage accordions and […]

We’re doing a show on home turf!

Dan and I have had loads of fun taking Can You Dig It? all around the UK but we’ve never actually done the full production on home turf, which is why we’re delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale for our FIRST FULL-SCALE SHOW IN LONDON. We’ll be at Oxford House in […]

Can you giggle it?

Last night we did a show in Bardon Mill in the beautiful county of Northumberland, one of my favourite counties. Dan was excited because we saw a small chunk of Hadrian’s wall on the way to the venue – the first time he has seen the wall. It was quite a long drive so […]
