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...........

What's In A Name?

I sent an email to John-the-accountant the other day asking him if he liked lemon curd. "You bet!" he replied, so I've looked out a jar of the marrow cream to take with me next time I see him.

Then it struck me that it me that although he said that he loved lemon curd - & the marrow cream tastes like lemon curd - I can't see him & his family tucking into marrow cream with quite the same gusto.

Given the amount of squash I plan to use for this purpose, & given it tastes great but has an unattactive name - I think I need to give it a re-brand. All suggestions as to what as, are most welcome...


  1. Can't come up with a name right now, but would like to see the recipe for the 'marrow cream' It sounds intriguing.

  2. You're right, definitely needs a bit of re-branding and marketing. The name "marrow" just doesn't have enough panache!

    Too early for much creativity - how about Zucchini Zinger?

  3. Don't say what's in it. Garden Glory (contains lemons) for example.

    I didn't know I was that devious!

  4. i've been thinking the same thing especially as is so uncreamy and the marrow is so cunningly hidden. I guess it's a bit like a 'zesty zucchini spread' and since zucchini is not a commonly used name in the UK it might throw a few doubters off the scent :o)

  5. Why not just "Vegatable Curd" or "Mock lemon Curd"

  6. Thank you all - far more creative than I am!

    Tony - welcome to the blog - & thank you for the most straightforward & sensible suggestion - Mock Lemon Curd it is.

    If you want to email me your postal address (hazelrobinson41AThotmailDOTcom), I would be pleased to send you a sample jar as a thankyou!
