No doubt you’re literally exploding with the need to know how my peppers are doing?
Yes, I thought so.
Well as you asked so nicely I’ll give you a peek:
Oh, hang on, is it a bit sad that I actually went into the lounge to get my little ruler thingy to use in that photo?
Never mind, it’s not a popularity contest (no, it’s a pepper growing contest!).
So, they’re rather lovely and shiny, a beautiful deep green colour and pleasingly cool and firm to the touch. Crikey, I’ve come over all Nigella. Don’t worry, I’m not flashing ample cleavage or licking my fingers unnecessarily.
Now, the question is, how will I know when they’re big enough or just plain ready to pick and eat? Any ideas from the more green-fingered amongst you?
In further pepper news, my fabby next door neighbour/friend/sewing buddy has just given me another 3 or 4 pepper plants to love and cherish! It’s a whole nursery of green pepper plants on my kitchen window.
They weren’t growing so well in her kitchen so I’ve adopted them and, even though the new fellas have only been here about 4 or 5 days, they’re looking really cheerful and growing well, so I think I am some sort of pepper plant mystical healer, or something.
Also, the sun hits my kitchen window from late morning onwards, so that might be a more logical explanation. Perhaps.
Here are the babies:
I’ll apologise in advance as I’m probably going to do a big blob of posts as I’ve been away and have lovely pics to share, self stitched skirtember updates and cute crochet things to blog about!
