When Chili, (the cat) died last year, the boys wanted to bury the cat and to plant a chili plant to mark the spot.
With the Covid-19 lockdown in full swing this spring, getting to a garden centre became rather problematic. We did, however, manage to eventually acquire a couple of plants, albeit a little later than I would have liked. The plants did pretty well though, providing us with a reasonably decent harvest of mild and spicy peppers.
They were rather tasty, too, and ended up in pretty much everything.
It turns out though that we’re not yet done with them. Over the weekend, I noticed that the plants are flowering again.
I know I recently whined a bit about the prospect of yet another heatwave, but if the autumn stays mild enough for another batch of chillies to survive, I shall stop complaining immediately.
We also held on to quite a lot of seeds and, next year, I shall see if I can germinate them. Here’s hoping for an endless supply of the glorious fruit.
