HAPPY NEW YEAR

+++++++++++++

 

 A New Year - but we are still facing the same problems. While we remain in Tier 4 we are not allowed to open the trading sheds. 

Unfortunately the light we were so pleased to see at the end of the tunnel has proved to be the headlights of a fast approching train putting us in even more danger. 

All we can do is flatten ouselves against the wall and wait for it to pass

Naturally people are concerned about orders that have been placed and I promise to keep updating on progress

 

SEEDS

The order was placed together with our payment in early December .

When they arrive notices will be posted here and on the trading sheds.  There may be some slight delay as the suppliers are also having to social distance etc which means orders are not processed as quickly as usual.

POTATOES

Our order was placed at the end of November and I was advised to expect delivery around 14 January.  They come from Scotland so we do not have to worry about any Brexit import problems.  Having said that relations with our cousins north of the border seem somewhat strained at the moment but I trust any delays will be due to adverse weather and/or logistic problems.

I suspect we will still be in tier 4 when they do arrive which means only the two of us can work together to get them bagged up instead of the usual small team.

Distribution will be another issue which we will have to overcome.

Ideas on a postcard please!
