How To Grow Your Own Fruit and Veg Synopsis

Joe Hashman takes you outdoors and 'in amongst it' on the vegetable plot where seeds are sown, plants nurtured, fruits tended and crops harvested. The natural history of the garden is noted, too, and delicious and often unusual recipes supplied. With his guidance - and your gardening - your kitchen garden, vegetable patch or allotment will provide you with the good, fresh, honest and seasonal fruit and vegetables that Joe has a passion for.

Employing his own simple, tried and tested methods the author takes the reader week-by-week through the vegetable and fruit growing year. Contents: Introduction; February-January; Jobs to do each week; Veg on the menu: recipes; Glossary of terms; Index.
