March 20, 2005 The Complete Life History Of A Chilli: Part 1 Posted in Garden The chillis were born on Sunday 20th March 2005, when some seeds nestled snugly into a bed of soil, and were placed delicately into a mockodile. I mean, a propagator.
Very domestic. I’m impressed.
For goodness’ sake, man, put them in a greenhouse at once and start praying for a hot summer. Shade is also good if the sun gets too evil. Just keep them warm or the chillis won’t be that hot. And be ruthless with them – don’t go for the biggest possible crop or you’ll end up with a crowd of numpty chillis.
Hark at me. I grow chillis one year and suddenly I’m the reincarnation of Geoff Hamilton.
The little guys are currently sat in a heated propagator with a piece of paper over their heads. They look like they are having fun. Next time I’m in the kitchen, I’ll check on your behalf.
