Yule be welcome

Yule be sure to find a warm welcome at the Hut this Sunday, December 18th, between 9.30am and 12.30pm, when Eric will be throwing another log onto the fire, Pete will be roasting his chestnuts, and - if you're quick - festive pies, cakes and cuppas will be being passed around!

We will also have our usual range of gardening items to tempt you with, and some lovely potted hyacinths for those hard-to-buy-for maiden aunts. This year's number one item on Santa's list? (Hatchimals, apparently.) No, we don't have any of those, but you're not likely to disappoint your loved ones if you gift wrap a bag of pelleted chicken manure. A perfect investment for next year's Christmas sprouts.

Please join us if you can, for our last get together of 2016 - all are welcome. Failing that, near or far, we would all like to wish you a very Happy Christmas, and hope that the sun will shine warmly on all of your growing efforts in 2017.

Tapping the barometer...

.....but it looks like it is going to be a case of brollies and sou'westers.

Firstly, a massive thank you to all of the volunteers who contributed to our first plant sale weekend, just over a week ago.

Which brings us to this coming weekend!
Yes. The weather forecast is far from promising, but the plan is that it all happens all over again on Saturday and Sunday, May 21st and 22nd. The sales open at 9.30 am and finish at 2.30pm (unless we've been washed away!)

We will be open for business as usual and are looking forward to cheering on the brave pedallers. If you fancy joining us at the roadside, make sure that you plan your arrival appropriately! The kettle will be on from 9.30!

We are now open both Saturday and Sunday 9.30am to 12.30pm and still have a large availability of seed potatoes, onions, shallots & garlic on general sale.

Seed Potato Arrival

Our seed potatoes, onions, shallots & garlic have arrived safely and have all been weighed out. A big thank you to the 20 volunteers whose hard work made this possible. Tomorrow we hope to make up all orders ready for collection.

Weigh to go

The arrival of the icy blast inevitably coincides with the start of our new season, and the arrival of the seed potatoes this Friday - January 22nd. That's the plan, anyway. So, once again, this is a call to all members.

We expect to be unloading potatoes, onions and shallots from the lorry at about 9am, although we hope that, this year, this will be a simple pallet-shift, rather than the manhandling of individual sacks that many have enjoyed in the past. Then, weighing out will commence as soon as they hit the ground. Labels, bags and trays are ready, and we would like to invite you to come and join us:

•muscular types at about 9.00am ... just in case...
•anyone, at any time from 9.15am until 4.00pm - for as long a time (or as short) as you can manage.

Collection of potato orders
Orders will be ready on Sunday January 24th, between 9.30am and 1.30pm. If you are unable to collect yours next weekend, we will obviously look after it for you as best we can, but potatoes need to be chitted in cool, light conditions, and will fare much better under your own tender care, rather than being left to languish in the hut! Besides, we will also be restocked with tea, coffee and cake, and invite you to enjoy some refreshments with us if you can. If you have not placed an order, we would encourage you to visit on Sunday to buy as soon as possible. We still have plenty of potatoes left, but popular varieties like Charlotte and Desiree will sell out quickly.
