New Lives In The Wild

Finally saw the episode the British film crew shot last year.  It actually turned out pretty good even though they left baby Ben out.  Now I have another film opportunity to ponder from the folks at http://warmspringsproductions.com/














Greenhouse is doing well except for my green beans....got swarmed with white flies and only got one harvest off of it.  Gonna stick a grape vine there that I got from a recent visitor.  Got one lone grapefruit hanging in there just a little larger than a golf ball.  My fig tree from last year is loaded up with baby figs.  Still getting lots of chard, spinach, and kale.  85,99,65,0,B,.20

John - Burn the dead bean. White fly is highly contagious.

Fig preserves! yum. they show poor ole Bob's head then no baby Ben! how dare they cut the star of the show out of their documentary. i don't have cable so i'd never see it anyway...and besides, we got to see the REAL thing growing up everyday.

You have done an amazing job in the greenhouse; it looks very lush! It's a shame they cut out Baby Ben. Can't imagine why they wouldn't have included him. Yours and his is great story!

No they never showed poor Ben on the program, glad he is still well. Like the green house, in fact like all of your lifestyle. Bit jealous but happy that you have a great life. Take care

John, watched the show at their site with the help of a proxy service, it was tv at its' finest,imo.

I strongly recommend any readers who haven't watched it to surf over to the Channel 5 site and view it asap:
