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...........

Wine Worries

I really am persevering with this gooseberry & rhubarb wine & it is still tasting -uh - cardboardy, & I still don't know what's gone wrong with it.

I certainly don't want to give cheery Brian & Pauline a bottle & say, "here you go, this might be OK cook with," when I have used 3lb of their lovely gooseberries to make it with.

The compromise is to give them a bottle of redcurrant wine - there's plenty of it, and it's zesty, fruity, smooth - & you don't have to pull a face when you drink it.


  1. Sounds good to me, Hazel, as long as you don't blame our gooseberries, redcurrant will be fine

  2. I hadn't thought about blaming your gooseberries! {grin}

    I hope that it's a bumper year for gooseberries next year, because if you can spare some, I'd love to have another crack at it and leave out the rhubarb...
