The Edible Garden

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.
