Congratulations to Peonies and polaroids, Skavop, Ffondant Marge and The Sneaky Magpie! Yours were the first four names out of the hat and books will indeed be winging their way to you.

Commiserations to everyone else-sorry that I can’t send you all a copy. I’ve really enjoyed reading everyone’s plans for the season ahead and after a cool start to the year, I’m now chomping at the bit to get sowing some seeds.

Veg Street is published this Thursday 7th March and books can be ordered now online. So here’s a taste of what’s in the book. There’s plenty of growing advice and what’s good to harvest each month,

plus some great planting ideas that I’ve picked up on my travels visiting other gardens.

As well as fruit and veg, there’s lots of information on plants to attract pollinators and gorgeous edible flowers

and every month, amongst the planting tips and ideas of what to grow,  there’ll be loads of advice on how to start up a community scheme in your own area.

I’ve had huge fun writing the book and I love seeing pictures of all my neighbours who are all part of our community veg growing scheme as I flick through the pages.

If you want to find out more, here’s a few reviews from fellow bloggers: Michelle at Veg Plotting, Charlotte’s PlotWellywoman and Caro at Urban Veg Patch and a lovely article about urban growing in the Sunday Telegraph.

Wishing you all a great growing year ahead!
