With all that rain last year I struggled with chillies, but this year it has been hotter and the plants are thriving.
My Tobago Seasoning chillies are prolific and much hotter than last year. Who needs a Christmas tree when you have gorgeous ornaments like these?
Most of the chillies are habanero-esque like last year,
While others look more like Liz’s scotch bonnet (or bishop’s crown).
My old faithful bird’s eye is going through its green-black-red sequence
The jalapenos are producing amazingly well and my long red thai chillies (retrieved from my restaurant curry) are starting to produce now.
Also enjoying the heat are the lebanese eggplants, which are approaching first harvest rapidly.
And I’m happy to report that the fruit fly have been far less destructive this year, although number are increasing now.
Happy Summer everyone! Hope you are enjoying the tennis 🙂
