Unusual Deliveries

Unusual Deliveries
These arrived in the post a couple of weeks ago.  
I had an email from Blogging Buddy Dawn from  'Doing It For Ourselves in Wales' asking if I would like a couple of Oca tubers.  I didn't even know what they were ... but a quick Google and I was quick to say 'yes please'.
Information on Oca tubers.
Unusual Deliveries
I planted them in a couple of large plant pots that I had, and set them at the door of the polytunnel.

Look what appeared on Friday of last week!!

Also on Friday my free seeds arrived from the last edition of my magazine, which after knocking off the cost of postage are worth £9.47.  They also included a trial pack of tomato seeds, something else for free!
Unusual Deliveries
Now they are tucked into my tin of seeds with all the other 'freebies' they are adding to our chance of being able to feed ourselves for free next year.
Unusual Deliveries
A very appropriate tin I thought :-)
Unusual Deliveries
With the seeds came some little plant labels and this free book ....
Unusual Deliveries
... storage method tips for all your fruits and veggies.
Unusual Deliveries
I'm always happy to learn some new ways to  make our homegrown things last longer.

In the post on Saturday was this.
Unusual Deliveries
Does anyone know why it is that when something is so obviously marked 'FRAGILE' the Royal Mail people decide that THIS is the package they will practice their basketball moves on  :-(
Unusual Deliveries
Luckily the contents .... six Lavender Pekin bantam eggs .... were carefully wrapped in little bubble wrap bags and surrounded by polystyrene chips.  They survived intact.
Mother Goose is now back on he beloved mothering duties, sitting on them in the henhouse.
Unusual Deliveries
Also in the post that day were my 'Storm Strength' clothes pegs, thanks for all the recommendations folks, and three little Buddleja plants, now happily residing in little plant pots of their own in the polytunnel, which they recover from their journey.
Interesting deliveries for sure.
