Peppers popping

After a week that looks like this


the last week in July 2015

I was very pleased yesterday morning to see these


peppers growing in the dining room

If the weather forecast is as predicted, they should be feeling more comfortable from now on. That said, the outdoor cucumbers have been similarly producing, so the rain has certainly done them some good. And who knows, the pumpkins might decide to flower and allow themselves to be fertilised before it is too late.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    You’re getting all my rain! We’ve had yet another dry summer in Cambridgeshire. Next year I’m going to just roll with it and grow cacti. You can eat those, right?

      Aloe Vera would be great!!

      Yes, we got a lot of rain over the last few days. No doubt by the end of weekend it will all have evaporated, so like you I had been wondering if there was much point in half the stuff I’m attempting to grow šŸ˜‰
