The tomatoes have grown rapidly in the last week and the vast majority are now ready there is still about 20 or 30 varieties of the middle of the alphabet that I’ve still to pot up because I was waiting for more pots to come in which got delayed, so I will get those potted up the next couple of days
But they are very big plants, so they will only need to be in the pots for a few days, and then they will be out ok to go out, so we will crack on with orders this week we got 71 out last week on our first week of sending them out and I’ve got a new Packer hopefully starting this week as well so with the three of us we should be able to get them all out relatively quickly
I’m just about to sow a second batch of tomatoes this week for later orders, so we still have plenty of plants available for a long while yet for anyone who hasn’t ordered yet, and we are still taking orders and will do so for several weeks yet so all is well and everything is going according to plan so far all be at little later than I expected thanks to the Beast from The East
It certainly feels like that this year mother nature is throwing everything at me ive now got a month long heat wave to contend with thanks mother nature whats next a plague of locusts
I am still trying to get as many orders out as I can im afraid I am having to do a few substitutes on some varieties now as a lot of stock didn’t get potted as I was so snowed under getting orders out so a lot got to big to pot on
I am going to send out a voucher code with the dispatch e-mail for all orders going out from this week just by way of a thank you for hanging in there.
As its getting quite late now I will start sending e-mails out soon with various options on going forwards.
If it could go wrong this year it has I made a big mistake taking the veg back on and the whole business model as it stands is not working so I need to make some big tough decisions at the end of this season one thing I need is bigger growing space so I can take on full time staff
