OL - just so you know those Jalape??os chillies are quite hot!!

Watering dried-out pots

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 22:47
What a fantastic idea Bob! After going away for a day my pots were showing their displeasure at not bring watered every 12 hours by hemorrhaging water when I tried to water them - I'll give your method a go tomorrow!

Evening all!
House is in a disarray, neighbours sound like they're coming through the wall, feet still ache from a friends hen party (though not as much as my ears), to do list is now beyond huge to the point of super human, reading material means I'll never need the television on again, feet are a mess from a sudden increase in walking / standing up, brain is happier than it has been in quite a long while, and...

I came home to my first two ripe chillies!!!!!

They'll be going in the saucepan in a few minutes with home grown tomatoes, home grown garlic and home grown basil for (one hopes) a wonderful (gluten free) pasta sauce.

Good idea Dove, I have ones for the birds will sort something for the other creatures. If your lad can pop over here too that'd be great - I'm watering twice a day but it doesn't seem enough!

Hope you all have a lovely day!

Hello all. I'm still around, just suddenly very busy of which I'll explain more in a month... all very exciting!

Peppers/chillies or lack of

Novice my Jalape??os are full of chillies now - of the selection I'm growing they are the ones that flowered first and I'm sure have been for several weeks now. In comparison my purple riots are only just starting to flower.

You haven't been feeding them or looking after them too well have you?

Morning all! Just weighed myself - eep! I thought not being near my works chocolate barrel would have helped matters but apparently that was keeping the fat from clinging I'm turning into the barrel!

Heatwave going on til August!

Mother just called and insisted I turned the television on to watch the shopping channel give "practical demonstrations" on some.... well to be honest I turned it on and got bored so quickly I'm not sure what it was. Some wedding cake tat.

Think its a little early to be choosing cake decorations, we haven't even chosen the year yet!

Stacey & her chilli bits

That idea makes me regret not liberating all the random teas you find of a hotel room Stacey!
Mine went for PG Tips and I have to say I really seemed to struggle with germination (unlike OL who seemed to have an entire forest of chillis!) Next year I'm going for Yorkshire tea!!

*giggles*

Really sorry to hear you're not feeling too well Stacey - but as the doctor kindly told me "you're body will be doing a fine job of ridding itself of anything that doesn't bode well. Just keep drinking and if things get really bad take a book in there".
