Growing chilies

I had a sudden inspiration to start taking photos of our chili plants last night. With an inspiration like that, a tiny blog post is sure to come out the next thing…

There are flowers…

This is actually my boyfriend’s project; he’s the one who first came up with the idea of growing chilies and he’s the one who planted the seeds, and so on.

There are chili peppers growing nicely…

Ok, so we don’t know (I don’t know and my boyfriend doesn’t remember) the variety of these chilies, what kind of chilies they actually are and everything, so we’re just waiting… ūüôā

…and hoping they’ll grow… That chili pepper over there is the biggest of the peppers so far.

We have two chili plants, both of them are of the same size. They are in a spot that is a bit difficult spot to take photos in – there’s no space to move the plants around, but I don’t even want to move them around anyway, just let them grow in peace there.

This last photo is taken today, I still tried to take a better pic of the biggest one… ūüôā

I came back (from Turku) to my country home here in southwestern Finland already on Tuesday, but it seems like there’s not happening much here in Owlnature… ūüôā But behind the scenes I’m preparing two blog posts, about our journey to a nature travel centre in the Eastern Finland in January this year.

It was a very special trip for me, because I had never been in such cold temperatures before, and because there’s still snow on the ground here in southwestern Finland, too, I thought it’s still appropriate to reminisce the trip here in my new blog. So, coming soon… ūüôā
