can he dig it? yes, he can!
9 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you're the kind of person who is fed up of the hustle and bustle of modern life and find pre-packaged food and microwave ready-meals unpalatable, then this is the show for you. Follow the exploits of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall as he uproots himself from the urban rat-race and settles down to become a smallholder in rural Dorset. Don't be fooled into thinking it will all be fun and games, Hugh makes it very plain that this type of lifestyle is hard work. It is, however, immensely rewarding. Watch as he turns his pretty country garden into a productive vegetable plot, gets to grips with the finer points of animal husbandry and makes many new friends among the welcoming locals. If you want to give self-sufficiency a try for yourself, or if you just want to grow a few herbs in your garden, then this is a must. a wonderful show and a refreshing change.
