I am delighted to show you the end results..
Just look at my chillies ripening. I have no less than 8 plants ( I gave some away) and they are all producing lots of yummy fruits. I am going to leave a few on to turn red.
I started these plants in my little propagator on my window sill back in March
By Easter they were all getting quite big and I started to acclimatise them to my kitchen by removing their cloches.
And flower they certainly did! I have cropped at least 20 fruits so far and there are so many to come as long as the weather holds warm.
They are the Jalapeno variety so quite mild, I really am not a fan of spicey food but they give a gorgeous warmth to my home made chile con carne and my Choritzo feast dinner.
These beauties I harvested on Thursday night....
They got chopped up and added to our dinner....yum!
Served with rice, parmesan cheese sprinkled on top and a glass of chilled rose wine.....perfect!
These have been so straightforward to grow that I am thinking of trying a couple of more exotic varieties next year. We plan to havest as many chilies as possible as they also dry really well. They can they just be crumbled into dinners and give a gorgeous memory of sunny days in the garden.
I hope you enjoyed the weekend, it stayed dry for us and we really enjoyed the barbeque yesterday. I have just finished tidying my garden in the sunshine. All my plants have also been given a welcome drink whilst Billy has slept in the shade. Phew, time for a sit down and a cup of tea. Have a great week.
Bye for now,
