Chilli update

Having been sick (just a cold) since the New Year, I haven't really had the energy to update my blog, but quite a lot has happened. The boar have been back, which I find amazing - their snouts must be so incredibly strong to be able to plough through snow, ice and frozen earth...

But this entry is about the 2011 chilli season, which is now well underway. In addition to the four I planted in November which are doing really well, I also sowed the following on 14 January:

Aurora, Caribbean Red, Purple Tiger

Spanish Pepper (just appearing), Trinidad Scorpion, Ring of Fire

Thai Chilli, Aji Colorado, Purple Serrano (no show)
And these which I sowed (in kitchen roll because they're fussy) on 10th January:

Bih Jolokia, Hot Paper Lantern

Plus a Fatali that is struggling to surface. So far, the no shows are Purple Serrano, 7 Pod and Fish Pepper. I also had to help quite a few of the ones that did show as the seed pod was reluctant to budge off the growing seedlings.


  1. Fina bilder! Har Bhut Jolokian dykt upp än? Den verkar inte vara så enkel...

  2. Nej, inga av dem fem jag sådde kom upp :(
