Stacey & her chilli bits

Posted: 19/07/2014 at 08:58

Mine all seem to OL - I can take a photo if you want?

Annie - Stacey had me starting mine quite early in the season (compared too for instance my tomatoes) and they've been in the greenhouse ever since. The purple riot has only just started to flower and my chilli willies (not from Stacey) that were germinated a month or so later are only just thinking about producing flower buds.

HELLO FORKERS!

Thank you Stacey!  I'm loving growing them - and thanks to your advice not over watering them which would have been my habit otherwise. They're scattered across the greenhouse and plastic greenhouse. Growing quite big now this extended warm weather has given them quite the growth spirt.

KEF - shows you what kind of mind you have!

I want to at least try a pasta sauce since my intolerance list is ever expanding but they're just so tasty! Even being right by the kitchen door they rarely make it inside.

Thanks Stacey - I'd have never even manage to germinate them without your advice! I can't wait to try again with a few I had trouble with next year.

I love the purple riot flowers - they're so beautiful!

The darling KEF sent me some tomato seeds earlier this year - Roma and Dave. They taste wonderful! Trouble is I'm eating them straight off the plant so haven't had the cjance to try making anything with them yet

Evening all! His lordship decided that what with it being the hottest day he'd decree we were having curry for tea. Am I not positively glowing at it is? 

What have I missed?

Talkback: Watering priorities

Oh Annie if you ever get married again I can loan you a few mothers / a grandmother who'll sort it all out for you!! I am used to project managing so as far as I'm concerned a wedding should be a doddle in comparison to running a project with shouting engineers and where the time frame was so strict the RAF gave us five minutes buffering time before sending a harrier over the lift site for good measure! A doddle that is so long as we all run to MY INSTRUCTIONS!

We've not even decided when (where!!) We're getting married much let table decorations is completely against the grain with my family who are most worried that I haven't rushed off to get piles of wedding magazines (don't they realise that's less money for me to spend on plants?) and choosen my wedding dress (not really appropriate since we don't know if it'll be summer or winter and seriously guys I've a pond that needs finishing!) Or started to make proto-type cake decorations (really? I've got tomato plants doing their best to dry out on me and you want me to worry about cake?!)

Annie - I brought my own engagement ring after getting fed up of waiting. You need to tell these chaps where they stand sometimes!!

 

I keep seeing people mentioning thunder storms and such like - can you send a little up here. We've had three minutes of rain today and that's not enough to make a dent on my water butt!
