I put an extra not so strong fresno plant on my north face/no light front garden as an experiment and guess what, although it has nothing to ...

Re: Drying red chillies

Re: Costoluto Fiorentino

I am! I have one in the backyard and have a few tiny fruits, about half an inch. But we are having a really rotten summer so far here in the NL.

Re: home made cleaning recipes

In France we used to have a cleaning produce called "Ajax ammoniaque" so I am not that shocked. I really dislike the smell too though. Let's go for lemon and lavender instead :wink:
