Vegetable Growing Month-by-Month: The down-to-earth guide that takes you through the vegetable year

It’s written by John Harrison (b.1955) lives in Snowdonia, North Wales on a smallholding with his wife Val and a pride of miniature lions who can be mistaken for moggies. As well as writing, he runs his website from his home. They aim to be as self-sufficient as possible, not only growing fruit and vegetables, but making their own butter, cheese and preserves and soon to be raising their own livestock.
His first book, Vegetable Growing Month by Month was a best selling success, closely followed by The Essential Allotment Guide and Low Cost Living which he says should have been titled “Self Sufficiency in the Suburbs”
Easy Jams, Chutneys and Preserves was a collaboration with his wife, Val, and it has become a bestseller because of it’s straightforward, honest style. Val not only tells you what to do but also what do when things go wrong. And they do!

It’s packed with hints and tips that will help all allotment holders to enjoy their plot more.
