Farmer Foggy DVD The show is built around a cartoon farmer who whizzes around a real life farm on his quad bike and explains how everything works. Most of the footage is real life video of a real farm, and is broken in to segments, with little quizzes to bookmark the sections. The quizzes are provided by Toot the Tractor, the show's other animated character.

The show is a new venture and as such is developing to fit feedback. My personal unease with the length of the segments and the degree of easiness of the games for the upper end of the age group has apparently already been raised and taken on board for their newest DVD Tremendous Tractors, and there are shows planned on Horses and Ponies, and on Where Food Comes From.

Grow Your Own Vegetables by Joy Larkcom It's that time of year when you can't get an awful lot done in the cold, wet muddy garden, and even if you could, your heart is longing for a warm fire, thick socks and hot chocolate. But you can keep yourself happy by planning the year ahead.
