We planted the tomatoes in the polytunnel early this week, and took the precaution of fleecing them on a couple of nights when the temperature got down to zero.
This has paid off as the tomatoes have survived and hopefully the risk of frost has now passed. The next crops to be planted in the tunnels are the French climbing beans followed by the aubergines and peppers.
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.
