Along the way he's introduced us to Marge the cow, Joanna the sheep, the three "Spice" pigs (Ginger, Baby and Fat) — plus lots of delicious recipes. Several hit TV series and books later, Hugh has now "upsized" to a farm, complete with some ramshackle barns and a lot more land. ——————————————————————————————————1/8—— by Veronica Peerless FOR LOTTERY, WE HAVE THE LOTTO p123 Buyers TV today Entertainment Cinema

If space is limited, include fruit and veg in your flower bed — runner beans, mini fruit trees and herbs look good and put food on the table. If you don't have room for a vegetable patch, try "square foot gardening", which means you can grow crops in literally a square foot plot. And don't forget to make your own compost. ——————————————————————————————————5/8—— Join in Richard & Judy's wine club 453 FOR LOTTERY, WE HAVE THE LOTTO p123 Buyers TV today Entertainment Cinema

Chickens, however, are ideal for a suburban plot. According to Omlet, a company that supplies organically reared chickens, a fox-proof run and a groovy "Eglu" means you only need a few feet of space for them to ro!m in. Choose female chickens so there isn't an early morning cock-a-doodle-doo. ——————————————————————————————————6/8—— Do you want to be on TV? 402 FOR LOTTERY, WE HAVE THE LOTTO p123 Buyers TV today Entertainment Cinema
