The greenhouse is like a chilli farm!

Thursday, April 25th, 2019

I’ve been catching up on planting out, tomatoes, chilli peppers (sweet and hot) in the greenhouse, this year has been so warm I’m weeks ahead (flowers already on my tomatoes!), the problem is, we can get frosts up until the second week of June, in these parts!

But the plants are growing so fast, that they really need to be moved on into their final pots. The greenhouse is like a chilli farm, so many chillis germinated this year.

So I now watching the weather for any frosty nights, the greenhouse is heated with a 2kW propane heater, and it’s also insulated with bubble wrap –  but this is just there to keep the temperature above 3 degrees C – to avoid jack frost!

I’ve got a remote thermometer in the greenhouse beaming back live temperatures to the house!

Don’t try this at home!

Friday, September 25th, 2009

If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know I’ve been growing chillis this year. Four of my plants, are now producing very small red chillis, pointing upwards.

So last night, after feeding my fish in the fish house,  on returning into the house, in the porch I picked one small red chilli off one of the plants and popped it into my mouth like a tomato and ate it!

It looked so tempting!

BIG MISTAKE!

IT WAS VERY HOT!

It took 2 pints of milk over 60 minutes to cool my flaming mouth down.

I should have taken note of the variety I planted

Chili Pepper Demon Red

I’ll not be doing it again!

10 inches long

Lindsey would say, “I wish”, but I’m referring to my chillis!

My chillis are 10 inches long, and have been very successful in my front porch, despite only five germinating.
