Growing chilli peppers.

Not everyone is a born farmer, but one way of encouraging people to grow vegetables is to get them started with a chilli plant.
Chillis like sheltered but brightly lit spots with high humidity and temperature. Growing chili peppers in a green house is pretty much ideal and that is how this bumper crop of chilis pictured left came about. Obviously, there is more to a successful chilli harvest than only light, humidity and temperature. Starting out with an ideal soil mixture is very important too.
You can use the chilli peppers when they are still green, or let them ripen to full colour for a fiery feast.
