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...........

And Back at the Plot...

...there is a great deal of weeding, deadheading & getting things generally back into shape.

However my ambitions for this evening only extended to picking a great bunch of sweetpeas & wielding the secateurs to try to get the front of the plot into some sort of order (limited success here - need more ruthlessness next time).

I hadn't got very far before Rhubarb & Mrs Brian came down, and we had a chat about the Show. I congratulated them on a good first year for their entries, although Brian said ruefully, "yeah, but the rhubarb didn't do any good!"

Jason (behind retired Maureen) came by too, so we turned to the serious business of discussing our various entries - successes & failures - the judges & the day itself, before Jason had a look at how our prize pumpkin is getting on, & then had a good look round marvelling at all the different bean varieties growing up the frame - I'll get him growing heritage varieties yet!


  1. What will you do with yourself in the winter when it is too wet/cold to go to the lottie and there isn't much to do anyway?

  2. Perhaps I need a hobby for those long winter evenings? Maybe something creative, and beautiful, yet practical....hmmm....

  3. Steady on girl, there's a little sign pinned up on the wall that reads "This Way Lies Madness" ......
