Overview

Amusing tales about the ups and downs of managing an allotment for the first time

Amusing tales about the ups and downs of managing an allotment for the first time When Kay Sexton becomes the proud holder of an allotment, she hopes it will be her first foray towards self-sufficiency for her family. Instead, she finds herself in a strange world of arcane rules and regulations and hose-pipe standoffs. After a rocky start, she finds her mud-caked Wellingtoned feet and successfully navigates her way through allotment-keeping: battling Biblical-scale pest invasions; learning the dark arts of the competitive vegetable grower; and practicing ninja-like disappearing acts to avoid yet another free cucumber from a neighboring gardener. Witty, well-observed and with mouth-watering recipes, this book is for anyone who dreams of a slice of the good life.
