Chilli peppers still going strong in the veg trug, we've had hundreds of them! The red ones seriously pack a punch 😋

They look great, there is a lot of crop on that plant. 😀 Are they easy to grow Ellen? I'm thinking of trying some veg and fruit next year and looking for something simple to start with. @ellenmarygardening

@richard.spicer.7906 yes very easy. Mine are kept under cover apart from midsummer when I take the cover off my veg trug. It's been a particularly good year for these. If you plant them out they need a sheltered sunny spot. If you have any questions about #gyo I'm happy to help! 😊

@debs69 it's great for over the colder months and it depends on what you are growing in it. The cover is off all Summer ☺️

I'm growing chillies for the 1st time this year. I've heard you can also freeze them?
