Growing pumpkins was such a wonderful experience. All summer long we got to enjoy the meandering vines and umbrella leaves. The growing fruit are almost magical as they change from pale yellow to a rich ruddy orange.
I’ve only had one chilli that hasn’t shrivelled up and died on me so far and the tree was looking pretty mangy. Then, a miracle!!! One morning I came out to water the poor thing and found it covered in tiny shoots! I am now eagerly anticipating a bountiful chilli crop!
