Early in 2014, just as the sun was rising

Wonder what might happen if several seasoned pairs of fruit & veg growers from various allotments were to go head to head?  If you haven't, well the BBC have. They have created a series to be shown early next year on BBC2 called "Grow, Make, Eat: The Great Allotment Challenge" recorded somewhere in deepest Oxfordshire.

Over six hour-long episodes various allotment hopefuls will cultivate to their best standards and each week the one that impressed the least - will go home.

Is this goodbye to The Apprentice?  Probably not, but if it encourages more people to grow their own garden produce then that can't be a bad outcome.  Oh, the series will be hosted by Fern Britton.
