a stunning array of firey delights

Look at this stunning array of dragon's teeth! So shiny and RED! We've strung them together with a needle and multiple layers of cotton threaded through the stalks. Very easy to do.

Last year Meyles took seeds from a supermarket chilli and planted them in our garden. He did this because the plants we got from the nursery were always different chillies to what we wanted. So the only way to ensure we got the right plant, was to grow it yourself from seed taken from the actual chilli.
Here they are hanging in the laundry window where the sun comes in. They will dry out here (hopefully) and get used at our leisure. Next weekend we will probably have another string full!
