By Peter Donegan, Sodshow.com
On this weeks garden podcast Peter Donegan chats with Pat Lalor, 4th generation farmer, now organic farmer, oat grower and head Don at Kilbeggan Organic Foods. Now working with his son John (pictured above), Kilbeggan only use the oats sourced from only their own farm and on todays show today Peter and Pat chat how to make the perfect bowl of porridge, treating your soil like your fifth child when growing organically and how instinctively knowing how and when to harvest by appearance and touch from an ear of corn. We also chat crop rotation, farmyard manure and a biscuit range that is his wifes recipe. What a story. An absolute gentleman and another whopper of a sodshow. A note of thanks to Bord Bia for their help in putting this show together. The Sodshow garden podcast airs every live Friday at 3pm and can be found just after in iTunes and all good podcast stores.
