Three days ago I was at the point of giving up. Other chilli farmers I knew now had chillies. I didn’t have a single one.
Not only that, the heatwave was playing havoc with my plants and some were wilting because I couldn’t water them fast enough. To top it off I have now lost several of my plants to a bug. Lots of bugs. How does a plant get infested with bugs indoors?
But then yesterday changed that. I must have overlooked this chilli before, otherwise it has literally appeared over night. It’s the only one I have so far but it’s big. This one chilli has it’s own guardian as well in the form of a spider (I’ve called Bob) who has placed his web directly in front of it to stop the pests.
There’s hope yet!
