As previewed here last month, You Are What You Grow by Antonia Swinson is now out, stylishly published by Luath Press for £9.99. It's a marvellous read for anybody who is, or is thinking about, 'farming' an allotment, although there's far more to it than merely a list of vegetables. It's particularly strong on aspects of community and land ownership - and there's an entire chapter devoted to her beloved shed and the joys and attractions of shed ownership, not to mention a shed on the front cover. You can read more about it at her website here - it certainly deserves to top the bestseller lists this Christmas.
