Toms, Chillies and Pots

Hello

Thanks for popping in.

Not only does this time of year mean you have to get your boiler serviced and your chimney swept to make sure you're all set for Winter, but also you're busy out in the garden collecting all the produce that has been busily growing for the last few months.

Our best fruit and veg this year, as they usually are, are tomatoes, chillies and potatoes although we've also had strawberries, peas, beans, radishes, chives and mint.  Whilst we've been away, Mr CK has had the automatic watering system plugged in which has been brilliant.

There have been all sorts of chillies grown from last year's seeds collected from last year's plants, some must have crossed to give new varieties, even some that look like small lemons.


We've already had three large cereal bowls full of tomatoes, these again were grown from last year's seeds, some in growbags and others in pots.  This washing up bowl of toms aren't the last either, there are LOADS more to come.





The second bag of potatoes has been unearthed, here they are tucked neatly inside.  This bag produced 1.830 kg, a bit more than the last bag.


Razzamatazz chillies look so beautiful and strike me as a great Christmas plant although I'm not supposed to mention the C word just yet, am I!

  1. That all looks fantastic. There's no taste quite like home grown.

  2. A lovely lot of home grown there! The chillies look beautiful! We too have more tomatoes ripening. Rain yesterday, but today beautiful sunshine. I should be out in the garden! Mr P has just finished the last of the hedge trimming now that it's a dry and sunny day :)

    1. The chillies are so bright and cheerful and there's so many of them, I expect the freezer will be full at this rate. The rain has been a torrent today, soo heavy and then bright sunshine. Good job you got that hedge done. 😊

  3. Lots of lovely produce from your garden. Tomatoes have done well for us too, plus broad beans and potatoes. The badgers dug up and ate the swedes and celeriac which we had tried for the first time this year. Your tomatoes and chillies look so colourful and cheerful:)

    1. Oh what naughty badgers! I expect you were looking forward to trying them. Everything looks so colourful at the moment, doesn't it. 😊

  4. I love this time of year when we are rewarded from all our hard work and start harvesting. There is nothing better than home grown.

    1. Isn't it smashing, even all the wild produce is looking fantastic. I expect you will be busy bottling and cooking. 😊
