Getting some harvest

My paprika type peppers are beginning to go red. I bought several different types which I will smoke, dry & powder for use in cooking.

These ones are an upright type.

These are Cayenne.

I have a few pumpkins ripening.

Lots of water needed.

Having major problems with the tomatoes, they all have yellow shoulder, supposedly caused by lack of available potassium. Some also have blossom end rot. Next year i will have to add lots of organic matter to stop this happening again.

My calabrese is finally getting there.

Sweetcorn has done the best. There are so many large cobs, I've already picked loads.


  1. Really jealous of your chillis. I grew three types from seed and they have not thrived. I think Edinburgh nights in an unheated greenhouse are just too cold. It could be overwatering. My tomatoes and cucumbers are happy growing in the same conditions but the chillis just lose their leaves as fast as new ones grow.

  2. Some of our tomatoes have blossom end rot too. It seems that this happens every year now regardless of what we do.
