New Favorite Find

I finally finished watching all of the Tales From The Green Valley, Edwardian Farm, and Victorian Farm videos. I was a little sad when I finished watching the last episode, but they I found a new show series called River Cottage (there's actually a bunch of shows such as Escape to River Cottage, Return to River Cottage, River Cottage Forever, River Cottage Spring, River Cottage Summer's Here, etc). Unlike the previous three series, River Cottage does not recreate historical farm life, but rather discusses a variety of modern homesteading techniques and stories.

Here's a link to one of the many River Cottage shows:

All of these shows I really like are British show! How come the U.S. doesn't have any great shows like this?


  1. I was waiting for two loaves of challah to rise and read your blog post. Those programs are great historical reality entertainment. Every time I think how much fun it might be to try it out temporarily, I remember that I like indoor plumbing and heat. PBS did a series about a decade ago, Froniter House, Colonial House, and a few others that were somewhat similar in concept. I like dthem so much that I bought the DVDs and use them as motivation whenever I work out. Doing an ellicptial stepper doesn't seem so bad compared to what they went through.

  2. I've watched some of the PBS shows that are similar, but I didn't like them nearly as much. Maybe I should give them another try.

    P.S. I love that you work out to videos of other people working!

  3. Yeah, I was going to suggest the PBS series too, but they're no where near as good as the BBC series are... Ahhh well. Guess you'll have to move to Britain!

  4. love these!! thanks for the link!
