Welcome to our plot!

I'm Hazel, and in Nov 2006 my friend Jane and I took on a half plot at Hill Allotments, Sutton Coldfield - we want the satisfaction of growing and eating our own fruit and veg, and to improve our diet (and fitness!).

This is the story of what happened next...........

Vintners of the World - no need to panic just yet...

Remember the celery wine that I started in February?

If you recall, I thought that it needed to mature somewhat in order to take the harshness out of it - well I opened a bottle this week because I needed white wine to add to a dish that I was cooking, and I hadn't any other, so it seemed like a good opportunity to try it again.


It is vile.

To look on the positive side, however, it is fine to cook with, so I'm now looking for wine based recipes so that I can use up the rest of the bottle.

Good job that the rhubarb wine show rather more promise...

  1. I have never really liked vegetable wines Hazel - and I can sup most things! Some of mine I have drunk out of sheer bravado but fruits are really the best.

    Glad the rhubarb is showing promise.
