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...........

Well, I must say that I am still reeling with smugness over the bean frame, today – which is just as well as there have been blustery showers all day as predicted, so the weather has been far too inclement for a visit to the Hill.

So tonight I got all my seeds out and sowed some more beans in pots – FRENCH CLIMBING BEANS (barlotti jody, birds egg & essex bb).

It’s funny how you meet people – a fellow student at my (totally unrelated to gardening) night class turns out to have an allotment on a site about a mile from the Hill – and tonight Eva asked if she can and visit our plot at the Hill along with her allotment neighbour Sue.

Well, they are more than welcome – and if either of them can solve the gooseberry mildew problem, so much the better…
