There's definitely something up with the formatting on this thread - if we point it out to Daniel I expect the quickest and easiest way to resolve it  will be to remove or lock the thread - and of course given the subject of the thread that is likely to be misinterpreted

Specifications for McSween's Haggis here http://www.scottish-haggis.net/macsweenspec.pdf .  The recipe does not contain gluten -  as Lily says, it contains oatmeal not flour - but McSween say it cannot be guaranteed gluten-free because of the rist of cross-contamination in the field.  I suppose it depends of the degree of your sensitivity.

What to do now says plant them now............

What to do now is talking about greenhouse tomatoes - the OP doesn't have a greenhouse and will be growing his tomatoes outside so now is much much too early to sow them.

Starting tomatoes indoors

I don't have a greenhouse so my tomatoes are started off on the kitchen and dining room windowsills - I start mine in early April and pot them on  quickly so they grow well and are ready to be potted on again into bigger pots and put outside in early June - that way they don't suffer from any check in growth and get away strongly - well that's the theory anyway - bearing in mind the Norfolk weather and the idiosyncracies of tomato plants
