Chilli Knitting

We planted six chilli plants earlier this year – we didn’t expect them all to survive – we’ve never had much luck growing chillies. They have survived and thrived!

We didnโ€™t expect more than a few chillies โ€“ but so far we have picked more than 2 kilograms of chillies and there are still more to be picked.

Ken has always wanted a chilli ristra to hang in the kitchen so he decided to make his own. I found this site with instructions and this morning he set about making the ristra.
