Several years ago I planted some Cayenne seeds in an odd patch of ground that had never been much use to anyone. Much to my surprise, I got a lot of peppers off that, and very spicey ones to boot! Unfortunately, they were arguably too spicey, and we ended up using very few of them because they were just too darn hot for various members of my family.
So there they sat, drying nicely in a bowl in the kitchen. For years. Literally. Many years. Gathering dust.
Finally, WeatherGirl put her foot down and announced that we were composting those little husks and moving on. But before that happened, I just had to take some photos. The first ones are set on the lid of a cast iron dutch oven that I love (but which we don’t use all that often). There’s another neat group posed with an empty lime cordial bottle, but I haven’t had time to clean and post those yet. Hopefully in the next week…No tag for this post.
