Peppers and chillies and limes – oh my!

Apart from putting the mosaics up, the inside of the limery is complete. All the plants that have been struggling along outside during our less-than-reliable summer weather are potted up and basking in the balmy conditions inside. Somehow I’ve ended up with many more chilli plants than I need and rather fewer pepper plants than I had hoped for, but everything got rather random earlier in the year and so it’s a bit of a miracle that there’s anything at all in there that I grew from seed!

So, for your delight and delectation, here is the limery with it’s current plant population – not very diverse, but exciting nonetheless:

  2. Oh, it’s a fabulous room! I love the deep blue which you have used on the low wall. You are going to have so much fun and pleasure in the Limery- a brilliant space for you both and your plants, which all look very healthy.

  3. I can only imagine the rich smell of tomato plants in the sun, and when the citrus bloom it’s going to be wonderful.

    I’m sure you and your plants will greatly enjoy the limery. Do you think it will serve about the same function as your greenhouse did, before? I never did have a greenhouse, but my spouse and I recently moved into a house that came with a “solarium” attached, and this winter I used it for the first time to start my hot-weather plants much earlier than usual. It worked brilliantly. 5 extra weeks of harvests make such a difference in our short Canadian summer!

    • It’s something I have wanted for many years, but somehow I seemed to difficult to do until this year. Really, once we found a builder who understood the project, it was all quite straightforward. I’m sure my output of food is going to increase hugely because of this space… think of all the seed trays I’ll be able to fit on those windowsills in the spring!

  11. And do the tiles on the floor hold the heat in at night, too? It all looks so cozy! ๐Ÿ™‚
