After nearly losing my Cayenne pepper plant several times it is now full of potential fruit! I have moved it back into the greenhouse as the nights are starting to get a bit nippy now we are hurtling toward autumn. My favourite season but where did the summer go!
I’ll have had about ten tomatoes once they all ripen and one pepper! the basil plants did really well, I used it to make a kind of garlic pesto, which I stirred through boiled new potatoes – yummy!
I’ve planted more lettuce and a load of rocket, both of which have sprouted so we’ll see how that goes.
The carrots are looking a bit more like so fingers crossed there too. I didn’t do anything to them, I just let them get on with whatever they were doing.
I’ve taken a cutting from my fuchsia, hopefully that will take. I gave one to my friend last year and apparently it’s doing really well.
When the kids have gone back to school – and weather permitting – I shall be taking the hedge trimmer to the bush at the front of the house. There is a bramble hiding in there too along with the noisiest brigade of house sparrows known to man. I dislike it immensely but it does afford me some privacy.
I sat and ate my breakfast outside today, it’s nice to just get outside and relax 🙂 I intend to make the most of whatever good weather we get for the remaining summer!
