Pepper Night at the Obs
Peter picking a pepper
Home grown, scrumped and local farm produce (note flat mate's smaller pepper)
It was harvest time for the obs window farm this evening. The window farm has yielded 3 tomatoes, 1 yellow and 2 red peppers and 50+ super hot chillies. So much for my plan to farm my way through the global financial meltdown- the chillies are too hot to eat and I barely managed two home grown meals in 3 months. Therefore I'm trying to buy from the local farm to support a local food network, harvesting wild fruit and also bought a new copy of Richard Mabey's Food for Free. If that all fails than I'm looting.
Oh yeah- 2 Ruff this evening, 4 Snipe, 6 Wheatear, 20+ Mipit and 1 Greenshank.
The moth trap is on at the moment- Deep brown Dart, Barred Sallow and Straw Underwing are the highlights so far.
