Already? I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I really don't know where the time is going. We've been here nearly a whole year.

Summer's here, it's pretty hot, and our plants are going gangbusters. I'm totally amazed at the comeback our tabasco chilli plant has made. Only a few months ago, it was so dried up, I was about to pull it out of the pot and throw it into the dumpster (I may not have been watering so regularly back then!)

I noticed a little bit of new growth coming through though, and decided to cut the dead bits back, and leave it to do its thing. Now it is big, leafy and covered in flowers and chillis!

We are also growing a few other things – tomatoes, capsicum, and some mint and thai basil that are doing really well considering they started from cuttings.

Growing tasty stuff is fun!

Also, top no. 2 is finished! I bought the pattern online. It was much simpler to make than my first top, and is nice and light for summer.

Very pretty and looks just as good (or better) than what you buy in the shop.
