Potato lifting this Saturday (14th Sept)

Message from David to all members.

If the weather remains reasonably dry, Mike will be bringing the tractor and equipment this saturday to lift the potatoes. It will be the member’s job to bag up as he goes and the bags then to be lifted on to the trailer to be taken over to the Shillingford Organics cold store.

MIKE WANTS TO START AT 10am. If we have a good turn-out we could be complete in 4 hours. The crop could be up to 2 tons (Nicolas, Trixies and Pink Firs). Which means 100 bags. Let me know if you have any queries. I will give a weather update on Friday evening.
