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 didn’t expect more than a few chillies – 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.



Tying up the chillies.

One strand of chillies completed.


Three strands of chillies waiting to be braided.
