Chillie update

Its 4th November and thanks to the mild weather so far this autumn, here are my aubergine and pepper plants still going strong in their containers.

Peppers and aubergines in the back yard

I will dry all the chillies in the airing cupboard and there should be more than enough for the winter kitchen’s needs.

There are a few golf ball sized fruit on the aubergines which will probably not get much bigger now, and although the plants are still flowering well, they are not setting any fruit – its probably too cold and not much flying insect activity for pollination.
