How else would we recognise him? I've always pictured him just like that
At a guess it's the higher light intensity that produces the darker colour.
Lemion drizzle cake anyone .....?
He hasn't had one again. Whatever it was it came on really suddenly and totally incapacitated him. We were staying at a friend's home in Cambridge - a really awful night.
The medics swore it couldn't have been the jab that made OH so poorly, but he's ever been ill like that before or since - it was such a shame as it was the Opening of his show at Kettle's Yard and he couldn't attend.
I don't know the variety in question, but from what I can find out it seems to be just a colour variant of the Hyacinth orientalis usually grown for spring bedding or pots and as such it should be perfectly hardy in the UK.
It's warmth rather than sunlight that chillies need to ripen, so can you bring the pots indoors to a bright windowsill in the house?
Mine changed colour quite quickly when I did that
Just Googled Home Depot - it's a large store in the USA so presumably that's where Sarah is. Conditions there are likely to be different to the ones I'm used to .....
Kezza - please post tomorrow morning and let us know how you are .... I mean - what they tasted like ..............
If you lay it on slabs they'll move unless you bed the slabs on concrete so you might as well lay it on a concrete base.
And as WO says - fewer lairs for lurking slugs
