Growing a side hustle - Update #1

in #money5 years ago

The chilli plants grow!

It’s taking a while, but my chilli plants are slowly growing with new seeds continuing to germinate.

This week is quite special since I have just finished potting up one of the chilli plants that I propagated from seed that I purchased. Along with the guy in the image below, I potted up another 3 chilli plants that I propagated from chillies that I have been growing in my garden for about a year now.


I’m not sure if it is the time of year, however the rate of growth appears to be on the slow side. But next week I expect to be potting up another 5 or so chilli plants. Which will bring my total number of plants to somewhere in the order of 20 plants.


Hopefully, unless disease strikes which is a real concern right now, I will have a mountain of fruit on my plants in the next 3 - 4 months.

And by then I will need to have decided on what it is that I will sell.

  • chilli plants themselves?
  • dried chilli flakes?
  • powdered chilli?
  • chilli oil?

Who knows, I’m still working on that one. The most important thing right now is to create a large crop. Which I am well on track to produce.

What chilli related products do you think will sell the best?
