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...........

Rasperries & Rhubarb Wine

Dave-next-door came round earlier & said, "You know, those purple beans you gave us this week - well they were gorgeous! So sweet!"

Which they are actually, & tender even when pretty hefty in size. They aren't my favourite dried bean - flat & brown & a bit boring - but delicious fresh, & I think they'll earn a place on the plot next year.

It's been a pretty good evening, actually - I had a text from Cheery Brian & Pauline earlier saying that as they were off to the wedding tomorrow, & so would I like to help myself to the raspberries?

Well, I don't need asking twice, so I'll be taking a punnet to the Hill tomorrow for filling!

And tonight I've opened a bottle of April's rhubarb wine, & very tasty it is too. I mentioned that I was going to open it to colleague Rita, & she said, "You told me I had to wait until Christmas to open my bottle!"

Ahh, did I? Oops!

  1. Surely you get Maker's Perks? (Like Cooks's Perks - a slurp of the wine that's going in the gravy or risotto!)
