The beginnings of a sweet pepper

In view of the fact that it is going to be blustery today, I decided to start in the garden by staking up the tomato plants where needed. I also cut off the lower branches to get sun to the roots and help reduce the chance of any pathogens destroying my crop.

Meanwhile, it looks like I might get at least one sweet pepper this year.

I’ve never grown them outside before but last year the cayenne peppers didn’t seem to mind. That said, they did start off in the plastic greenhouse, which might have some bearing on overall production.

In any case, temperatures are expected to be in the twenties (Celsius) over the next week, so that bodes well for the growth of tender crops. And hopefully means I will get some decorating done while they grow!


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.
