The next day, business began to pick up. Not dramatically, but bit by bit.
A sack of potatoes here...
...and a punnet of strawberries there.
At one time we actually had three customers in the shop at once. That must have been a record!
By the next week, things were even better. Word had spread about Wishing Well Farm.
Uncle-and-Auntie Pat weren't likely to become millionaires, but business was better than it had been for years.
dramatically — слишком быстро
bit by bit потихоньку
sack — мешок
punnet — круглая корзинка (для фруктов)

Uncle-and-Auntie Pat weren't likely to become millionaires, but business was better than it had been for years.- Маловероятно, что дядюшка и тетушка Пэт собирались стать миллионерами, но дела шли намного лучше, чем в предыдущие годы.
