The team face the conditions of 1945 and prepare to harvest the wheat crop following one of the wettest summers in memory. Even as the conflict drew to a close, the need for home-grown food became greater than ever. With Britain sharing the responsib... (more)ility for feeding populations across war-torn Europe while struggling to afford imports, and American aid no longer available, rationing lasted well into the 1950s. As a fitting send off, the team celebrate the harvest with a 'Holiday at Home' - inspired by a government scheme to encourage exhausted workers to make the most of time off without travelling anywhere. Alex has a surprise up his sleeve to make the party go with a bang.
