Now I am scared and frighten of wasps as one year got stung 14 times but the other day family friends daughter wanted  some to go with her lunch so I had to be mega brave and picked some but their are so close together already planted when we moved in last December  but I will try and make the path wider in the autumn  .

Now the chillies were given to me by a friend  last Saturday I picked our first harvest and we put some in with our scrambled eggs we were having for breakfast and as David was getting them ready we only used one and he cut quite a large bit and put it in his mouth luckily I had some milk on hand as these are fiery ones

I used one without the seeds in our bolonages I made for tea last night got to find way to of keeping them once picked any ideas please leave a comment below  please and thank you

have a blessed day in your garden until next time
