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...........

Sunshine & Sunflowers!

It was an evening full of summer sunshine which I spent otherwise engaged some 80 miles away from the Hill – however I did nod a ‘hello’ to Bilbo at the signs saying ‘Preston & the North’ when I turned & headed for home.

I did mean to post this picture of the self-seeded offspring of last year’s competition sunflower, which I took yesterday – it’s flowering at about 5’ so would be rubbish in this years challenge.

This year’s sunflower is about the same height, but no sign of a flower yet – which is good news – and it seems to grow while you watch it!

  1. I hope you were paying attention to the road when you nodded at the "Preston & North" sign.

    Before we moved here I always got a lump in my through when I went under the M6 gantry that says "The Lakes", at that point I felt I had crossed an invisible boundary and was nearly there
