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, even without going to the Hill this evening, I must say that there was plenty of choice for my meals today.

After home grown lettuce & cucumber in a sandwich for lunch, I had a choice of varieties of potatoes to go with my lamb chops this evening (cooked with red onion & garlic), then peas, two types of French bean, courgette (yellow or green), cabbage from Reg-next-plot, carrots & broad beans (from Paul by the gate).

Of course, I didn't eat all that lot - I'd be the size of a house - but what fabulous variety!


  1. And which cake did you have for pud?

  2. It's hard NOT to eat a large amount of veg at this time of year if you grow your own!

  3. Marble cake distributed round the borough, with a little in the freezer, fruit cake for suppers, Julie - yum yum!

    It is delicious, Dinzie, if I say so myself!

    We're a bit spoilt for choice at the mo, Flum - must remember these times when I'm eating kale for the 15th day in a row in January...
