May be Mathew it'd because there's so many of us on the forum and " those that be  " can't keep up with us all   .

Chillis on Thai basil

Posted: 08/09/2014 at 13:13

These defiantly look like a chilli plant and its chillies , do you have anything at all that would resemble.  Basil? 

I am thinking if so some chillies seed have got into the what should be a basil seed packet.

You could also check with the seed company.

A Birthday gift / Verse .................................


A Senior Citizen is One who was here before;  the pill,television, frozen

foods,contact lenses, credit cards...........

and before man walked on the moon.

For us , "time sharing  "       meant togetherness, not holdiday homes,

and a chip meant a piece of wood.

"Hardware "  meant nuts and bolts  ,

and software was not even a word !

We got married, first then lived together,

and thought cleavage was something that butchers did.

" A stud "  was something that fastened a collar to a shirt,and  " going all the way " meant staying on a double decker to the bus depo.

We thought that " fast food "   was what you ate in lent;  

A "Big  Mac " was an oversized raincoat and " Crumpet " we had for tea.

In our day; "grass"  was mown,  

"Pot "  was something you cooked in,

" Coke " was kept in the coal house and a joint was cooked  on Sundays !


We are today's SENIOR CITIZENS .

A hardy bunch ar 'nt  we ?

When you think how the world has changed !

This year I grew a packet of ammaranthus from seed.these are a lovely tan shade , some creams amongst them too. I think they were from fothergills . About  18 inches tall . Don't know if they are like the usual dark purpley ones  that still come up each year but I shall find out.
