Wednesday 11 June

This week, the first potatoes and radishes are ripe to be pulled out of the earth and broad beans de-podded for the most luxurious beans on toast going. The Bristol experiment, to turn an acre of derelict city land into a smallholding, continues as vegan Jess picks up a batch of hens from a nearby battery egg farm. Back at River Cottage, Hugh’s invested in a new hatchery for his duck eggs and is amazed to find the ducklings arriving days early. And he organises a foraging competition pitting a kayak team against a shoreline team: whatever they find is what they’ll feast on in the evening.
