As most readers will know, I generally post to this blog every day. For the next few days I expect to be a bit low-profile though. We have a lot of commitments coming up and I will probably not have much time for blogging, so don't be surprised it you don't see anything new from me.
One of the commitments is a visit to the Challock Chilli Fest, hosted by Stephen and Serena Shirley, at Victoriana Nursery Gardens, in Kent. I'm sure their display of chillis will be a lot more impressive than mine, but some of mine are not too shabby you know!
This funny little Siamese twin is a "Calico".
While I was away from home earlier this week (on business), Jane made herself a meal of Stir-fried Chilli Prawns which included one of these "Hungarian Hot Wax" chillis.
This variety is very mild for a chilli. Jane described it as "like a sweet pepper but with a warm afterglow".
Hoping to be able to post some photos of Stephen's chillis next week...
