Prudence, along with two friends has started up a community group to spread the word about kitchen gardens.
With a bare minimum of marketing, the group is growing beyond all expectations - kitchen gardens are very, very now.
Inevitably, their activities have attracted the attention of a nutcase.
It turns out, in the world of poultry (for the next meet is all about chooks in the backyard) the politics is nasty.
Prudence does hope this one-eyed chook fancier - who had a number of concerns but was prepared to articulate only his worries about the cholesterol content of eggs - goes away, and others are discouraged. But she's not at all confident.
With meets planned on preserving the harvest, building a backyard pizza oven, planting out the spring garden and so on, there's much to inspire further nutcasery.
