Chilli Plant dreams

The biggest chilli pepper plant growing on the kitchen windoswill by the radio. The Chilli plants love classic FM on the radio. Its hoping for a newer, more well lit kitchen to grow on.
I get to go to work now for thirteen hours, on my long day :)

Is this your first time growing chili peppers? If not have you ever produced anything from them. I would like to have some sort of veggie but not sure about my space issue. Oh I wish that we were all able to have large house and gardens to put all the plants we want in.
I hope you find your dream place. 13 hour long day does not sound fun. What do you do to work 13 hours a day?

Hi Vanillalotus,I have never grown chilli peppers before this year.I was inspired to buy them from tatton park flower show (from Robinsons Veg stand).I want to grow them primarily for cooking as i love spiced food.Or my taste buds are expiring so im trying hotter and hotter foods!
I wish i had a small house with a big garden, but at the moment any garden is better than none.
13 hours is a long day on a medical admissions ward.It was busy but not too bad for a change!
I am a Registered nurse (RN) away from the gardens!

I'm glad to see someone else growing peppers indoors. Mine are doing well. In fact, I threw one out because I had 3 vying for the space and all grew into monster plants with at least 40 blooms each. I've already given away a bunch of peppers for a relative making salsa. I pollinate the blooms with a small paintbrush. Some flowers and their stems dry up and fall off. I assume these are ones I never pollinated, but I'm not really sure.
