Re: hello peeps!

Hi - and welcome to Ish. I can't type your name without wanting to turn it around LOL.

Swearwords will be bleeped out by our filters but safe to assume that most of us would probably hazard a guess at the one you were going to use anyway ;-)

Re: Wild Photo Competiton win The Wild Life or Wild Drugs

I don't think it's a prize winning shot tho ! I never win anything. But I love it, I was so pleased with it. But then, most of us wouldn't bother to put our photos up if winning was the only goal!

Re: Most hated vegetable Poll

I LOVE sprouts too - simply delicious. Not much I don't like on that list.

I'd suggest that those folk who hate broad beans try growing some and eating them when they are very young. Yummy. I don't like them once they've grown too big.

Re: chilli peppers

ours were indoor ones and we just kept them indoors... didn't really do anything to them and perhaps it was just luck that meant we had some chillies on the plants the year after. Will be looking to do the same this year and will have to check up on what to do as ours are now in an unheated conserva...

Re: chilli peppers

Are you going to overwinter your plants? I know ours lasted into a second year and did even better the next year.

agree with above!

I've got something that looks like sunflowers in my garden too but they aren't forming flowers... not sure whether they are sunflowers or jerusalem artichokes. Pic will follow.

Re: chilli peppers

massive chilli crop from 6 seeds? Which variety did you grow?

I've got a fair few plants on the go - some have done better than others and the pretty in purple ones are dripping with fruit. None ripe yet though. I can't wait to use some in my cooking.

I was using a hosepipe but it had so many holes in it that I ended up soaked at the end of it so have resorted to watering cans - there have been times when I've not got there in ...

Re: Tobacco

I know someone who is - I think you are allowed to grow it if it's for your own use though.
