    Hi Josefine Källström!

    Love your post! 😍

    I must admit I have never tried gardening 🙈 but I feel inspired by you. It must be amazing to try vegetables or fruit you sowed. I'll definitely try to do it (as you mentioned it's the perfect time to start doing it) and I'll share my process with you! 🍅

    Oh, wow! Thank you for sharing this, Josefine! 😍 Yellow tomates sound so nice!

    I just this morning posted to my team that it is getting ready to sow the pelargonium seeds I gave them earlier. I am hoping it will become a talking point in our informal meetings to compare how it's going and who get's the first blooming flower 🌷

    Hello!

    Mariana Cañavera H. Have you started yet? :)
    Emilia Nilsson Oh, I love pelargonium! Such a nice idea to give to the team and have that as a topic and maybe competition ;) 

    I want to update you all on what came out of the pots!

    I don't have the greenest of fingers but I used to grow different sorts of chilli peppers, besides the common Jalapeno and Habanero my favourites (and not well known) are:


    Bolivian Rainbow
    Yes, they really look like this!

    Black Pearl
    They start out black and turns red as they mature.

    Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper)
    Used to be the worlds hottest chili pepper at 1,000,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Unit rating), now the record holder is the Carolina Reaper at 2,200,000 SHU, for reference Tabasco sauce is 800 SHU and Jalapeno is ~6000 SHU. Word of caution from personal experience is to handle them with gloves, the burning sensation subsides after a few hours if you don't!
    Generally the more crumpled a pepper looks the hotter it is, so keep that in mind if someone dares you to eat a whole pepper. 😈
