Rescue plants
 
A month or so ago I was in the local B&Q where I spotted a number of sorry looking veggie plants on the bargain trolley. I picked up a tray of Jalapeño chilli plants, a tray of beetroot and a potted habanero chilli. They were 20p each and didn't look like there was much hope for them. The beetroot are now doing exceptionally well in the aquaponic grow bed and the chilli plants look really healthy too. One is even producing fruit. Think I'm getting the hang of this green fingered malarkey.
