The weather has smiled on us all over the past week, and the 35 prepared beds (1.25m x 60m) are almost ready for planting. One area remains that hasn't been used since it was covered with card and wood chips some years ago, and has some difficult perennial weeds that must be painstakingly dug out. Just the small matter of the visiting rabbits that took up residence. We found and repaired fives holes in the netting yesterday and hope to complete the boundary checks today. We suspect they are living in the steep bank by the building that housed the water mill.

We are now close to the limit for the box scheme, and are unlikely to take on more customers unless a new customer lives close to an existing customer or unless someone drops out.

Covid 19: We have decided to reduce all contact to a minimum in the hope that we remain uninfected and can continue working. If anyone here becomes ill, it is likely to cause a suspension of deliveries. If you are self-isolating, please let us know by email what arrangements you have in place to avoid contact with your driver. We will still need empty boxes back, please, and it is more important than ever to keep them dry and serviceable. May you all avoid the virus, and if not, then make a full recovery.
