The chilli peppers Lina and opit have been cultivating are already yielding some fruits. Here’s the greenhouse where Lina also grows some heirloom tomatoes. We mulch the soil and have sown some basil plants between the chilli bushes.

The Poblano pepper has a slight aphid infestation but we’re keeping it at bay with neem oil and ladybugs.

The Peruvian white habanero is already fiery hot.

The purple jalapeños still taste like green peas, but look beautiful.

One of the several wildly differing guajillo plants has a couple of fruits that turned red over the last few days!

Meanwhile, sweet Padron and Shishito peppers are already being consumed daily.
