The ebook version can be found at: Sow, grow, eat ebook.

The first book published was “Playing with Plant pots: Tales from the allotment”. This contains an assortment of different lessons that were learned from having an allotment, and a series of Indian Inspired recipes that can be made using plot produce.

The ebook version can be found at plantpottales.
