Think I might need to order another allotment looking at my seed box.  :lol:
hahaha! Do you wish you'd kept the other one, now?

Haven't handed in the keys yet - paid up till end of year. All depends on whether I feel like paying for 2 come January and what the consultant says about replacing the second knee.

A small order from Real Seeds and my usual Heritage Seed Library choices.
I have ordered seed potatoes from DT Brown as our potato day is cancelled.

Any other new seeds will be coming from the seed circle on this site.
The rest are saved from my own plants

Still waiting for our commercial suppliers to send us the list of seeds they are offering at a reduced price ... might drop them an email to see when it's due to arrive.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Started sorting through to get the seed order done. After this year's desperate begging and scraping because I left things late - next year I hope to be more organised.   :blush:

An interesting one - Tamar Seeds has a notice up saying that the company can't supply international orders and that includes Northern Ireland. Someone on another forum an allotment holder in Eire can't get his seeds from his normal suppliers in the UK this year or his spuds from Scotland. It's to do with the phytosanitation requirements to prevent the import and export of diseases along with the seeds.

We got  a phytosanitation notice to say that the seeds met with the appropriate government decrees on our Kings Seeds order for the allotment association this year.

As most packets of seeds came with a notice saying that they meet with all relevant EU legislation over recent years - well who knows what will be in the garden centres next season.

Basically until 31st December you can sell or buy seeds in Europe but after Brexit takes effect we're no longer part of the single market so import/export regulations apply. I've just stopped offering delivery of our books with free seeds outside of the UK because of this.
The status with Northern Ireland is more confusing, my attitude is to send it and see  :wub:

You realise, John, that you've just instigated a new criminal investigative layer of policing!

I can see it now 'Coated Seed-Feds' swoop on budgie enclave...
'Tuber-Cop' chips in with pictures of vinegar smugglers...

and

'F1 seeds join Bernie Ecclestone in promoting faster-growing plants'!

<<<GROAN>>>
Sorted out the seed order yesterday - remarkably small as I've a lot in the store. Just hoping everything turns up now. Might head off to the garden centre later to stock up the potting compost before the post-Christmas lockdown.

Our chum at local GC told me that it's been a very difficult year for compost distributors as well as all the other suppliers!

I've been doing a major clear-out of a load of old stuff in the roof, and found an old Marshalls order from 7th December, 1989!

Over thirty items, including 'Desiree' runner beans at 1.49, 'Montgomery' brussels at 1.35, and Calendulas at 0.65p!

I wonder when they'll arrive...
