Habanero cappuccino

Hi!Haven't tasted this one yet. But the pods are nice, and I expect the typical habanero flavor.The colour is nice. A paler kind of brown. Very nice plant.I grew it some years ago. Back in 2006. The seeds come from the old plants. So it's nice to see that the seeds are OK after almost ...

Goatsweed, an old favorite

Hi!Goatsweed is great! Not because of the taste. It's hot. Sometimes very hot. But no special taste. It's a Capsicum annuum, wth hairy stem. The pods are hard to take pictures of, because they are really really dark.But, we're having a heatwave with lots and lots of sunshine. So the days are bright, and the ...

Hypnosis and Hot Sauce

Back in 2010, I got Scott Roberts from to volunteer for a little hypnosis experiment I wanted to try.  There is something called HypnoBirthing which basically is hypnotherapy to remove the pain and fear associated with child birth.  So a woman can have a pain-free baby delivery.  I figured since I had learned a ...

Hot, but not too hot. I had almost forgotten how good they are. I think they are so much better than the "newer" super ...

Last day in July

(That includes me as well...) But, when the real action occurs. When the chile peppers are picked, ...
