The dull and cool weather continued on Tuesday. Some light rain in the afternoon didn't amount to much so it looks like this will be the 6th month in a row where our rainfall has been substantially below expected.
On the plot our carrots in potato sacks are growing well but the ones with a scarf around them due to the top of the potato bag not been turned down look to be growing a little bit better.
The carrots below sown at the same time are growing but not as well. The only obvious difference in their growing conditions is that the potato sack top is turned down leaving them more exposed to the cold winds of late.
I've now unfolded the top of the sack to give the seedlings a little more protection.
We've had a swift reply from Dobies regarding our poor quality plants. They're contacting their supplier to send out another batch and if that's not possible they will refund our costs. A far cry from the response from Marshalls which was basically the plants were fine and we didn't know what we were talking about. After a rather long telephone call they too offered us our money back - but at the moment they haven’t put their money where their mouth is. After more than two weeks they still haven't returned our payment.
