Can You Dig It? mixes with the stars

Dan and I have been busy enjoying our glamorous showbiz lifestyle, mixing with all the top gardening and food celebs. Last week we were at a chic party in central London where we met Michelin star chef Tom Aikens, who showed us some photos of his rooftop vegetable garden. He says he spends TWO hours a day up there on top of being a top chef – that’s more than Dan manages in a month. We also met the head veg gardener at Raymond Blanc’s two Michelin star Manoir Au Quat’Saisons and were encouraged to discover that even the best veg growers in the land are having a tough season thanks to the bonkers wet weather.

Other exciting new friends include food writer Tom Moggach who has a great book out called the Urban Kitchen Gardener, and children’s cookery expert Beverley Glock who gets her dresses from the same shop as me, Vivien of Holloway in case you’re interested. The party was to celebrate Franchi Seeds’ veg garden at this year’s Hampton Court Flower Show, which I am going to on Monday because of being so glamorous and showbiz.

In other exciting news, I am expecting delivery of my THIRD pair of show wellingtons today. Dan says we’re practically bankrupt because I have spent all our budget on wellingtons but he will soon see that these new wellies are absolutely VITAL as are the ribbons, bells and hosepipe that I purchased yesterday. All will be revealed at our next show at the Carriageworks Theatre in Leeds.
