Ep. 113 - At this time in Autumn there is an abundance of produce coming out of our Kitchen Gardens - but does anything beat the taste of a home-grown Apple or a swig of freshly pressed Apple juice - Saul and Lucy don't think so!

The mellow fruitfulness of Autumn has been heralded by the subtle change in temperature and darker mornings and evenings in the garden. For Lucy Chamberlain and Saul Walker this starts one of their favourite times of year as Lucy's vegetable patch is at maximum yield producing food for East Donyland Hall and Saul revels in the changing colours in the canopies of his precious treescape at Stonelands. So join us throughout the season as we bring tales of crispy leaves, hibernating plants and plenty of pumpkins!

One of Saul and Lucy's great joys at this time of year is to have a wander into the orchards they look after, pluck an apple straight from the tree and sink their teeth into one of nature's greatest fruits! And both implore you to take a look at the 100's and 100's of varieties that can be grown in this country to find your favourite and give it a go in your garden - from Cox's Orange Pippin to Pitmaston's Pineapple, the wonderfully complex world of Apples is a feast of flavour, colour and texture.
