You can dry them with ambient air on floor or in a bin that has a ventilated floor. They take some time but don't try to rush the job as it can lead to cracking. If you use a drier, use cool air at no more than 60C

You've done well to get them in. When did you harvest them?

I've written mine off. They were fine until a few days ago, and I was hoping to harvest today, but they're all mouldy now, which is pretty irritating.

Yes. It was only a small area, and they were looking good until a week ago or so. This bloody wet weather knackered them though. I learned from the experience, but perhaps not enough to give up altogether.

The campaign is being run across TV, print and in retail as well as social media, so millions of consumers will have the opportunity to see it. We know 98 per cent of households enjoy meat and dairy but some are looking to reduce, and this is who our campaign speaks to.

Farmers and consumers alike have congratulated us for airing...
