Where have we been?

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

Grower of the Month

Here I am as “Grower of the Month” in Your Allotment magazine, a boutique publication for allotmenteers in North London. The mag is perfect for anyone battling to grow crops on London clay as all the articles are about people trying to do the same. I don’t know what I am doing in […]

Splendid Seavington

Dan and I were given a very warm welcome when did the show in Seavington (pronounced Sevington), Somerset on Saturday. Not only had our hosts adorned the stage with homegrown fruit and veg, and THREE bags of John Innes compost, but a local artist had created a series of glorious paintings as a […]

Carrot dig it?

Here are the first carrots harvested from my carrot bath and I am very pleased with them. They include two special yellow carrots, which I grew for the first time this year and which have done particularly well. I can recommend growing carrots in a bath – or any other container – especially […]

Jo is the champion

Yesterday was one of the proudest days of my life when I was crowned Queen of Flower Arranging and best novice jam-maker at my local produce show. Above is a picture of me with my award-winning allotment blackberry jam (although I must admit that I only picked the blackberries and my best friend […]

Rodney’s babies

There’s another, more interesting royal baby in town. Rodney, star of the hit vegetable cultivation-based musical comedy show Can You Dig It? and showbiz royalty, has given birth to some chillies as yet un-named. This is a great achievement given that Rodney nearly died in a terrible falling-out-of-the-tour-bus accident earlier this year in […]

Jo enters her first vegetable show

If you have seen Can You Dig It? then you will know that we delve into the mysterious world of competitive vegetable growing in Dan’s excellent song The World’s Hottest Red Hot Chilli. The song is all made up because neither of us has actually entered a show before. But at the end of […]

National Allotments Week

It’s National Allotments Week! Woo! And just to prove once again that Dan and I are not making it all up, here is a picture of my allotment although it’s a bit out of date as everything has grown loads since this was taken last week, which was not National Allotments Week. As well […]

No touching or pointing

This is one of the biggest things I have ever grown – and it keeps getting bigger and bigger. It’s a Boston winter squash (I think) although I have lost the label. I was proudly showing it to my allotment friend Tomato Man yesterday and reached down to stroke its shiny yellow skin […]

Man in the Ironic Mask

I went to Hampton Court Flower Show earlier this week and here are just a few of the interesting things I saw like this man in a gas mask in a vegetable garden. Apparently this garden was inspired by the Metallica song I Disappear and shows that if we grow our own we can both […]

Dan goes all experiMENTAL

Here is a picture of the lovely garden where we performed some songs from the show earlier this evening for a Brent Stop the War fundraising event. It was in this gorgeous setting that Dan went a bit bonkers and decided to try something completely new when we were doing our Slug Rap. He thought […]
