A few months ago whilst shopping in my local supermarket, I bought a chillie plant instead of buying loose chillies. I am green fingered but I wanted it for my kitchen windowsill. My point is that it really hasn’t taken any care at all apart from giving it’s roots a drink everyday.
I haven’t bought any chillies since then and on the last count, I’ve got over thirty chillies on it now!!
If I end up with more than is needed, I will chop them and freeze them for use later.

Fresh is always best!
