Barefoot gardeners of the world unite!

Let it rot…

what's in your heap?Sounds from The South 14 – Viva la rot

There’s a new day and time slot for The Dirt on Radio Fab International from today. Tune in every Monday night from 7-9pm here for “a gardening programme like no other.” Tonight’s show featured some great tips on compost by Geoff Garrad (including rip up your tea bags before putting them in the heap or they’ll never rot), sausages and calories in alcohol amongst other things.

Our contribution to the show this week is also about composting. I had so many failures with my early heaps I went on a great “composting in the city” course (taught by our good friend Scarlett) and I’ve imparted a couple of things I learnt that day.

SFTS is 20.55 minutes into the podcast which is available here and on iTunes. Record of the week is from Dillinger with the track called Ragnampizer. Keep on rotting y’all!

Sounds from The South 13 – Nightmare in New Cross
Our contribution to The Dirt this week is a true halloween tale set deep in South London. Tune of the week is from the The Wailers with Fire, Fire. This is the last show on a Sunday night when The Dirt moves to it’s new spot on a Monday, same time, same channel. Keep it locked!

Have a listen on play again here and Sounds from The South is 7.30 minutes in. Cheers again to Si, Ricky and Paul!

Our contribution to The Dirt this week is about my beloved gardening boots when I worked for the council years ago. Tune of the week is from the Carlton & The Shoes with Love me forever. Keep on stepping!

Have a listen on play again when it’s up later this week (19th October show) here (Sounds from The South is usually around 10 minutes in.) The show features The Idiot Gardener, Peat, Morissons and The Gentleman Gardener amongst lots of other stuff. Cheers again to Si, Ricky and Paul!
