Synopsis

If you have ever dreamed about growing and cooking your own food, living the good life and getting close to nature, then this is the book for you!

In this week-by-week account of the fruit and vegetable gardener's year, you are invited to join Joe on the plot and get stuck in to the important jobs of the day. The finer points of crop husbandry are beautifully and clearly presented using simple step-by-step colour photographs. With poetic licence in his writing, the author takes readers on a wonderful journey of discovery through the changing seasons. A wealth of easy to follow but unusual recipes will keep the chef in you busy and satisfied too!Contents: CONTENTS Every week, by calendar month: ON THE PLOT; JOBS TO DO EACH WEEK; VEG ON THE MENU.

Joe's first book, How to Grow Your Own Food, was published by How To Books in 2007 and received widespread critical acclaim. His down-to-earth style and quirky tales from the garden continued with the release of A Vegetable Gardener's Year (2008). This latest volume stands alone as a manual for both the first time grower or seasoned expert, and perfectly complements his earlier titles in the ongoing quest for success and satisfaction on the plot. Writing as 'Dirty Nails', Joe's popular weekly columns have been enjoyed by the readers of the Dorset-based Blackmore Vale Magazine since 2004. He now contributes to newspapers across England and Wales on a regular basis.
