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...........

Countdown to the Show!

With light rain this evening, gardening has been confined to scrutiny of the Show Schedule to see what I might have ready for the Big Day next weekend.

The domestic classes include jellies, chutneys, fruit cake along with the dreaded marble cake. Ingredients have been bought, & with rain forecast tomorrow, a day of mixing, beating, sieving & baking awaits...


  1. Best of luck with it. I think more people should enter shows. Without all the other entrants, the winners wouldn't have much to boast about!

  2. I counted up today and have 12 definite entries & 8 possibles - maybe some winners in that lot, perhaps!

    I hope some of the new plotholders will join in - Rhubarb Brian says he'll enter anything that he's got ready, and if cheery Brian and Pauline (the jam queen!) don't put something in this year I'll have their guts for garters!
