Potting the Chillies

It’s been three weeks and the Pimientos de Padron chilli seeds have all well and truly sprouted.  Of the 45 seeds that have been sown, all but two germinated.

The seed raising tray has done its job and it’s now time to pot them.  This was a pretty simple affair, the trick being to poke your finger through the drain slot in the bottom of each compartment to push each plant proud before then delicately lifting them out.  I scrounged as many pots as possible and filled each with some cheap potting mix.  I used a wood offcut to make a plant shaped hole for each and in they went.  Too easy!
