I introduced a BBC documentary film today named The Edible Garden in which Alys Fowler attempts to avoid shop-bought fruit and vegetables and live off her own home-grown produce. You can watch the film, enjoy the idyllic beauty of DIY while practising your British English as well.
This documentary film consists of six episodes. I’ve created a playlist so you can indulge in all of them.
Episode 1: Peas and Beans, Alys Fowler makes delicious broad bean falafels and pea-shoot cocktails.
Episode 2: Salads, Alys Fowler weaves salad crops through the flower borders of her small urban back garden.
Episode 3: Roots and Leafy Greens, Alys Fowler shows how root crops and leafy greens are the mainstays of an edible garden.
Episode 4: Juicy Fruits, Alys grows some juicy fruits and makes jams, tangy fruit leathers and apple rings.
Episode 5: Flowers and Herbs, Alys shows how flowers and herbs bring the garden and kitchen to life.
Episode 6: The Winter Larder, Alys grows Jerusalem artichokes to harvest when the rest of the garden sleeps.
