It was with a heavy heart,that I realised the time had come to start finishing the 2012 season. The temperature is dropping and days are getting shorter…..So now, my mission is to ripen off the remaining pods on the plants. I started in the Hydro greenhouse, and was pretty ruthless ! Any part of any plant, that didn’t hold a pod… was swiftly removed with secateurs,even if they had flowers on, as were all the leaves that remained on the plants. What was left, were bare skeletal stems… containing lovely pods, some green, some semi-ripe.
I will now start doing the same in the other greenhouses…… Once I’ve cleaned up the mess I’ve made !!!!
