Not sure the variety, but my chilli plants have been doing well and the fruits are about 1cm.  I keep them outside in pots with a straw mulch and lightly water them every other day...but they are beginning to wilt in the recent temperature which is only going to get hotter.  I have read that a stressed out chilli produces hotter fruit but I don't want to push them over the edge so have put them in the shade.  Should I have left them in the full sun?  Thanks for all the advice

Last year I posted that my James Grieve dwarf apple tree was displaying unhealthy leaf curling.  I eventually took to secateurs surgery as it became rampant  - and this year the harvest looks like its going to be fab.  Not often that things works out (on the allotment or anywhere else for that matter) but sometimes "rescuing from the jaws of defeat" and all that!!. 

Mind you, the rest of the plot has currently turned to granite and it's going take more than surgery and a lorry-load of manure to save it.  The cracks look like something from an earthquake disaster movie.   What to do?
