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...........

Bah, Humbug mk II

After a few normal days, it's back to snow & bloody cold weather again.

The five day forecast shows all the temps - night & day - in blue, meaning below freezing, so it looks like the couple of inches of snow which fell on Friday & Saturday will be hanging around for the foreseeable. I'd show you, but I can't work out how to copy & paste the screen shot thing - the formatting comes out all funny when I try.

So that means being confined to barracks again & not being able to get to the Hill - but on the plus side, the tree is up & looking good ready for Christmas next weekend, & Oliver cat has taken up timeshares between my lap & being in front of the fire.

It's not so bad, really.


  1. That is a very happy looking Oliver-cat! I don't think I want to look at the five day forecast for here ...

  2. the delights of a cat on the lap bring cheer to even the gloomiest day :o)

  3. I've peeped at the forecast on your behalf, Bilbo - you are marginally better off than we are.

    Never a truer word spoken, Nic! :)

  4. Hmm, we might be "better off" in terms of lack of snow but it is curently minus 11 (blog update just posted)

    Psst: does a warm and snuggly puppy count if there are no cats about?
