Well here I am, finally taking root, looking to bore all and sundry about my life. Now that I've begun writing, I am reminded of Park Avenue - the soap on TV (Channel 4) Text back in the '80s and '90s.
I live on the Sussex Coast, where I was born and raised and where, some five years ago, I stumbled across a Chili Pepper Plant for sale (in a pet shop of all places!). I took it home, charged an old chimney pot with a mixture of loam and sand, sunk the sapling into its new home and watched it grow (OK Miracle-Gro played a significant role in its development).
Since then I have been on a mission to grow successfully-from seed- at least one of each type of chili plant that graces Mother Earth. From this yearn onwards, I have avowed to achieve this organically and without too much ranting and swearing and whinging ( I am normally capable of such traits to an almost professional standards).
