The Chilli Challenge June Update
Here we are right at the end of June. How did that happen? As to be expected now we’re into mid Summer things have really taken off. We made a decision to empty the cold frames completely because of the heat. The Cayenne, Ancho and Kung Po chillies are now planted right at the front of the plot whilst all the other varieties are in gravel trays at the side of the greenhouse, where whilst they might not get full sun all day the do get some protection from the easterly wind that often affects us.
These plants have also been potted on one final time either into seven/eight inch pots or eight litre polythene pots which we’re using for the first time this year.
All the plants are being fed weekly and we now have flowers and fruit on the Hungarian Hot Wax, Cayenne and Ancho and the rest look as if they are on the verge of coming into flower.
From top to bottom in these pictures you’re seeing Hungarian Hot Wax, Vampire, Cayenne, Habañero, a tiny Ancho and Hungarian Hot Wax again.
I hope to be doing some cooking in the next month.
As usual If you’d like to add a link to your chilli blog posts in the comments then please do.
A post script; since the blog move to self hosted I find myself unable to leave comments on some Blogger blogs, specifically those that don’t have the Name/URL option. If anyone knows how to overcome this I’d be really grateful if you could tell me what I need to do.
