After a rather disparaging post on Friday maligning Thomson and Morgan and their Customer service - I am rather forced to eat my words. I did indeed email them on Friday at 3.36pm - I received a reply at 3.49pm. Good news - Not only have I ordered Garlic and Shallots but some onions too! Bad news - I have to do lots more digging to get the beds ready! Oooops :0)
I got the the lottie on Saturday and have made a good start on this years potato bed - I will be putting the overwintering things here. I'll get it dug over and then whap in the onions, garlic, shallots (broad beans too if they will fit), then I can make a start on the others in my own good time. Having stuff in the ground overwinter really encouraged me this year as I could always see that some of the allotment was actually doing something and looked good. So the more that I get sorted out now the better.
Also got hailed on and soaked to the skin but never mind! Worth it - came home with yet MORE beans - the Frenchies are STILL flowering! WOW.
Anyway this means more work to prep them for freezing. Thank god for Chest freezers. :o)
Have a good week and chat soon X
