If the changing seasons delight you; if you're happy in your garden and love cooking what you grow;

if you keep hens and like flowers on your table - join me and we'll share the joys of life here at the Kitchen Garden.


Although I no longer have a shop, we randomly open the house and garden on an ad-hoc basis. We hold pop-ups at Christmas, garden parties during the summer, and take stalls at fairs.

Christmas Shopping Day 2015 with lots of local makers here at the Kitchen Garden, on Sunday, 6th December, from 10am - 5pm. For more info, please email  francine@kitchen-garden-hens.co.uk.

Join me, through the pages of this sequel to All my Eggs in one Basket, as I leave my much-loved home of thirty years and downsize to the seaside at Whitstable. This beautifully illustrated book charts progress as we convert a bungalow, plan a low-ish maintenance garden, plant an orchard and start again with chickens from scratch.

Keep up-to-date with goings-on at the Kitchen Garden-on-Sea with my blog, packed with news, seasonal recipes and pretty photos. I’ll try to remember to offer timely tips for those with hens and gardening advice. Catch up with my columns from the Sunday Telegraph and follow links to recommended websites that I love.
