Episode 8: Even as the war draws to a close in 1945, the need for homegrown food grows greater than ever and lasts far after the conflict ends. As Alex, Ruth, and Peter harvest the wheat crop, they must grapple with weeds, one of the wettest summers in memory, and wartime machinery to bring the crop home-taking a giant leap into the modern era with the arrival of a 1940s combined harvester.
