Winter chili peppers on the catwalk

My 400th post
December 14, 2009


A guest admired my ornamental chilies, telling me that it's interesting to take note of how they look during winter, because the ones with pods and leaves are a spot of colour in a sad garden.

CariocaThe Carioca is a real Christmas Surprise, full of bright pods, it looks like a mistletoe!


FluorescentThe Fluorescent Pepper, amazing even during winter.


Black PearlThe Black Pearl lost some leaves, but its black and red pods and its black leaves are always beautiful.


Aussie BlackI will grow again the Aussie Black too, for its colourful pods and its variegated leaves.

It s so rare that turmeric has a starring role in a dish. Usually it s just added for color. Delicious soup. I love kale.
