Good philosphy OL. You've had a go at so many new things this year and we all live & learn.
I find that with my veggies some things have great years others not so good. It's disappointing when things fail but not the end of the world. I take a more relaxed view these days, if they do well great if not tough luck.
In my GH the Gardener's delight are doing fine, few grotty leaves have been removed, the St.Pierre are pants, they've had the same care, so I just won't grow them again ...That'll teach them ! The outdoor ones grown in buckets, which are an outdoor variety but I don't know what, so are called Dave after chap who gave me the first plant, are doing very well and will ripen before GH ones. If something were to happen to them I'd have a bit of a sulk but would try and think that at least I don't have to water them & I have some seed left fom last year that I can use for next.
