I can't do much in the garden following my surgery, so having to watch plants collapse and slowly die and weeds take over. Hopefully in another months time I may be able to do something.
Tomatoes are fruiting at last. Had some lovely big beefsteaks, but cherry tomatoes are finished. Have finally got a few cucumbers off the green cucumber plant. Had about 6 altogether. Watermelon is still disappointing, had flowers, but still no sign of any fruit appearing.
I went to the cafe at Kings Plant Barn and couldn't resist checking out the plants. I ended up buying a new Chilli that is meant to fruit all year. It is in a reasonable size pot, so I don't need to do anything with it for a while. Once I'm strong enough i'll repot it. It is called Chilli Rocoto Canaria. According to the label "Tall growing chilli which forms a small shrub. Fruits all year round. Medium sized oval fruit ripens to yellow. Very hot." It had a few flowers on when I bought it which are purple. Unusual I think, as the others I've grown had yellow flowers. It also has a few small fruit on it. Here is what it looks like.\
