This is a newbie speaking. Growing up on the Swedish country-side (forest, forest, etc) with vegetable-growing as a natural, you'd think I would've done it myself after moving out. But no. As so often is the case today, I've spent my grown-up life in cities and been quite disconnected from nature, slowly forgetting anything I might've learned.
After many turns and future anecdotes, I ended up in London and eventually found myself inhabiting a garden flat. And suddenly my slumbering gardener inside woke up. So here I am trying to grow some vegetables on trial and failure basis, learning as I go along.
This chilli is my first soon-to-be harvested vegetable! My flatmate gave me a small pot of grow-your-own chillies and tomatoes, and they kicked the whole thing off. Unfortunately they all died during my almost month-long visit to Sweden during x-mas (oops). A few brave chillies survived though, and this friendly one has finally decided I could make use of a fruit! And it's starting to turn red! I'm off to a good start!
