    Giant Chilli

    I have always fancied having a go at ‘giant veg’. This year I have grown ‘gigantomo’ giant tomatoes and long chillies. Here is my long chilli – quite a way off the World’s longest chilli which is a record 505mm long – grown by Jürg Wiesli (Switzerland) in 2018.

    Projects for the Autumn

    We have found that if we want to get any ‘structural’ work done on the allotment it is best to use Autumn well. Once the wet weather really sets in rainy weekends can make full days of construction difficult. Spring is far from ideal for projects – you need to be planting so time spent in Autumn is very valuable.
