Buddha Peppers & Garden Update!

Buddha Peppers!

I spent part of today in the garden tidying up, weeding, etc. This picture of one of our pepper plants shows just how happy they have been. While not easy to tell by this photo, the plant is loaded with peppers!

Other updates, the first bunch of main potatoes were dug up and although most are small, they were plenty of them! So I’m leaving the other 5 bags for a few more weeks before harvesting. And the apples on our second tree are just about ready for eating. We’ve had a couple from this tree and they are sweet and very juicy – we’re all looking forward to next years crop already!

All Hail The Prince of Orange!

I bought this little herb as a seedling by post from a Scottish cmpany called Barwinnock Herbs in Ayrshire. In the few months I have been looking after him, he has frown very well. The smell of his leaves when rubbed is a strong citrus scent and I have grown fond of the little darling. And then he flowered!

The unexpected dainty little pink flower was a wonderful surprise and I love it!

Further images of the garden are available on my Flickr page and include our yummy apples, a weird cucumber and sweetcorn in the making!
