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...........

Shortest Day

Today it is the shortest day of the year, a second shorter than yesterday, and five seconds shorter than it will be tomorrow.

I know that it will still be damp/dark/cold/miserable/wintery for a while to come, and you won't notice any difference in the day length for ages, but even so - it's all good from here on in.

Roll on Spring.

She sits in front of the fire and shells beans.
