A Year in the Mud and the Toast and the Tears
$24.95 inc GST
After buying an old cottage in the Adelaide Hills, Georgie and her young family are transfixed with dreams of becoming hobby farmers. They long to tend chooks, sit by log fires, grow their own veggies and generally immerse themselves in the joys of nature. However, a stubborn cow named Ginger, acres of mud, a feral crop of artichokes, the coldest winter of the decade and a husband whose job means he is away from home most of the week with time only to repeatedly bog the tractor on the weekends does not make their introduction to rural living ideal. Surely things can only get better? For anyone who has either made the escape from city living or dreams of doing so, A Year in the Mud and the Toast and the Tears is an entertaining and humorous story about a tree change with more than a rocky start.
