Adding notes

Both products and stock items are able to have notes. Product notes might be useful for allergy information, or recipe ideas, and stock item notes might be useful for quantities, or varieties. For example, if the product is ice-cream, your stock item notes could specify that the stock item is chocolate ice-cream.
