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...........

With Apologies to Tennyson.....

.....'In the Spring a gardener's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of seed sowing' - or somesuch.

So tomorrow I'm going to the garden centre for seed potatoes and compost; and this evening I have had a sort of the seed box.

It all was going very well until help arrived.

If things turn out anything like the jigsaw I have just completed which has seven pieces missing (presumed hidden under the fridge, in my handbag, down the settee, behind the stationery cabinet in the office etc etc), I will be finding seed tapes in odd places for some while yet.

Probably just as well that I haven't got the pea and bean stocks out just yet - such fun.


  1. Perhaps you could train them to plant the seeds too! Love that picture of the cats helping

    1. Thanks, Fran. The cats have an uncanny knack of turning up when 'something interesting' is going on - even if the 'something interesting' is happening silently, a couple of rooms (or even floors) away, and when they are dead-to-the-world asleep!

  2. Lovely cats! Looks like all of you had fun.

    1. Thanks, Snoop. Yes, the cats are lovely, even if at 9months old they are hooligans and into everything!
