Celebrate National Allotment Week and win a copy of Minding My Peas and Cucumbers

‘A charming, oddly moving and genuinely useful book ‘ A. L. Kennedy

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.

To celebrate National Allotment Week we are giving you the chance to win one of three copies of Minding My Peas and Cucumbers. Simply answer the question below:

Q: Which of these three vegetables are not green?

A: Cabbage
