Seven Pounds of Potatoes PleaseLarge Print - 2009
In the mid 1970s Sheila and John, together with their large family, leave their smallholding in the Weald of Kent to take on a new challenge - a small village store in the West Country. Life at the Crossroads Store, selling everything from fruit and veg to buckets and torches, is never dull, and some of their customers are decidedly eccentric! The work is hard and the hours long, but they soon become part of the community - exploring the beautiful countryside and accumulating even more pets, including Torty, the disappearing tortoise. However, as their older children begin to leave home their thoughts return to Kent.
