When my parents were here a few weeks ago, my mom helped me plant an herb garden. My mom loves growing things and playing in the garden, so she jumped at a chance to help me cultivate my green thumb. Up until now, the only reason I had a green thumb was because I'm a messy painter... and chances are I had a green knee, nose and toes too!
Yes, you are reading correctly...we planted "super chilis!" Leave it to me to plant the super-hero of the plant world.
I'm sure Chris and I will find a recipe to use them in, though if you've read this post from last summer, you'll know we're not fans of the "super-duper" spicy! If nothing else, they'll add some color to my little garden.
Look, there's one growing! I haven't killed it yet, Mom!
I love the freshness and color they lend to our little sunlit patio. Definitely an improvement from this last summer:
The plants have been growing really well, so I think I'll have to make a batch of Palumbo spaghetti sauce gravy soon! Or maybe some yummy Thai food with sweet Thai basil!
Anyone want to come over for dinner??
