During the war, the British farmers were helped out by landgirls. Since then they’ve had to rely on volunteers whose love of turnips makes them compulsive week-end land workers.
Whilst not exactly a turnip-fiend. DEBBIE STEPHENS does love farms. At harvest time, she’s to be seen actively pitchforking hay. We caught her after she’d finished a day’s stint and was changing from an agricultural boiler suit into her going-home outfit. Debbie said if she’d known we were coming she’d have changed behind the hedge.
But we caught her out. as it were, and Debbie looked every glowing inch a farmers’ dream help measuring 37-23-36. We took some dishy photographs.
We had a glass of dairy milk afterwards. It was quite intoxicating.
