many of you may recall that i don't grow veggies. because I have too many Amish around and wonderful neighbors. just today was texted by my next door neighbor to come over and help myself to his tomatoes in his garden.

I took these photos of some of my chilli plants a month ago. I had about 100 plants but sell them and donate all the proceeds to charity.

Twenty of the plants are Naga chillies and are over 1 million on the Scoville scale. They're ordered each year by people from the Bangladeshi community and they're amongst the hottest in the world

The others are my own cross bred chillies and are very popular. They're hotter than Cayenne or Bird's Eye but not quite as hot as Scotch Bonnet. The advantage with them is that they are small plants and very prolific. some people buy them just as ornamental pot plants.

I went away for a one week holiday and, before going, picked all the zucchini. When I returned the plants had worked very hard and tried to grow all the produce into marrow!

I also grow a large amount of green beans. The three varieties of French bean have survived the heatwave fairly well and are giving me about 1lb of produce a day. The runner beans, a favourite in this country, are suffering in the heat. I grow a lot of them (also selling for charity) and by this time of year am usually picking about 10lb per day. Instead, it's down to about 5lb.

Plums, apples and pears are doing well but the blackberries are struggling at the moment.

All the peppers grew well. Now I can preserve it with zucchini and tomatoes. :)

But then some kind of creature came and ate only the Bulgarian peppers. I got the seeds of these peppers from a gardener who for many years grows it in his family. I do not know why the creature chose this pepper specifically.
:cautious:
