Just as the last of the peppers and other chilies are being reeled in over at Michelle's garden (I have been in awe of her harvests of the hotter stuff for months) mine are beginning to hit spring bloom. The thai red chili, which produces tiny but quite hot little numbers is back for its third year and there I thought it would only ever be an annual. It actually fruited up to about September so it really hasn't had a huge break in between. Now it is laden with green leaves, flowers, and a few new green chilies just waiting to colour up.
New this year was a habanero, first posted about here and a slow starter. Now it really has taken off and is a similar mass of green leaves, flowers and tiny, tiny, tiny green habaneros.
Can't wait to cook with the first ones, the habaneros, well, I'll need a bit more time and bravado for that!
