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 and hostile world of hosepipe standoffs and arcane rules and regulations.
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 practising ninja-like disappearing acts to avoid yet another free cucumber from a neighbouring gardener.
Witty, well-observed and with mouth watering recipes, this book is for anyone who dreams of a slice of the good life.
