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 did have a sort through my seed box tonight.

Er - I do have rather a lot of seed packets, & this is after I put a whole heap of seed packets into the seed swap parcel which I had a few weeks ago.

The list of seed looks like this:

Unusual veg - 7 varieties/packets
Root veg - 26 varieties/packets
Beans - 35 varieties/packets
Peas - 14 varieties/packets
Brassica - 18 varieties/packets
Salad veg - 54 varieties/packets
Herbs - 3 varieties/packets

I originally had a list of an astonishing 37 types of vegetable detailed separately - but thought the list might look rather less lavish grouped into categories, but I'm really not so sure now...

Must get a grip!


  1. You are aware that you only have a half plot and not the whole of the Hill!

  2. Definitely need to give the girl a whole plot to herself!

    As for the Seed Collection - ooo, err, missus - and I thought my fabric stash was out of control, at least if I don't use the stuff it doesn't go off whereas some of your seeds can only wait a year or so for you to decide what to do with them. 35 different beans, not even Flummery is growing that many {giggle}

  3. Yeah, yeah - very funny you lot!

    And in my defence with regard to the beans, Bilbo - that number does include varieties of broad bean, runner beans, dwarf fr beans, climbing fr beans & soya beans, so it's not that bad really?

    Hmm - probably!

  4. We collect seeds so we can infect you with the enthusiasm Bilbo. I have to confess that I daren't even count mine. Beans, peas and tomatoes are my weakness because I can save the seeds - or even breed new varieties.
