Mmmm chocolate truffles...

Good news KEF we've had a little more rain! One could even consider it mildly moist.

Managed to part sew a little more of my quilt,  good job he's away this weekend I've rather taken over the lounge but that'll teach him to go to a cider festival without me.

 

We're always good Fidget!

They're all in the greenhouse OL - with a few in the plastic greenhouse while I was meant to be tidying up the greenhouse (several weeks ago  )

KEF - we've had 2.3mm of rain in the last 24 hours. We've got our own mini microclimate here we rarely get any of the bad weather that ends up in Rother Valley before heading North to you. Unfortunately this means the garden isn't getting enough water!

Morning all!  We've had a few drops of rain but nothing interesting yet. Think I really ought tidy up the green house to day.

I've discovered that by the back door is a real sun trap OL and seems to suit them well. I think I'm only doing so well as the vegetable garden isn't ready yet so I've only had a few plants to care for! Next year I'm sure will be very different.

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.

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!
