Chillis on Thai basil

Posted: 08/09/2014 at 07:31

Looks like a chilli plant to me too.  My purple chillies had purple flowers. 

Have you tried eating the leaves - do they taste like Thai basil?

If you slice the seedpods open are they like chillies inside  and is the juice 'hot' ?

Don't rub your eyes!!!

Lovely pics 

Can't zoom in enough to see the shape of the petals, but I'm wondering whether that un-named plant might be or a relative?

Forsythia - and wisteria

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 20:07

It's late in what has been quite a warm and dry season (well here it has anyway).  Autumn is here and the leaves are dying - well, that's my diagnosis for the forsythia anyway.  

I'm worried about a wisteria in a pot - how big is the pot?

Party at the Birthday Boy's place - there must be some cake left 

OH and I have polished off the Rioja already but Artjak makes home made wine - she'll have plenty to spare 

Any wine makers out there?

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 19:40

It's a long time since I made country wine, but I used to make a lot and won some prizes at local shows - I'm trying to make space (physical and timewise) to start again.

I never bottled until fermentation had finished
