someone snuck into my garden and stole a bunch of bell peppers. this is the second time i've noticed. there were at least 5 or 6 beauties just about to turn red.

you know, if it's someone who needs the food, i don't mind. not even the stealing part as i guess needing food might be embarrassing. but do they have to break entire braches off, thus killing any more production from the plant.

grrr.

i wish they would be curious about, then steal some of the ghost chiles.
that way i could find them by the hopping around, waving at their mouth and screaming.

BT, that sucks. Could it have been squirrels?

no, most animals don't completely remove the entire fruit or veggie and leave no trace, nor do they snap branches in an upward motion.

i had a pretty good haul today nonetheless:

If it makes you feel any better I joined you in that glass of wine - both of them.

buckytom, what do you use the ghost chiles in? Isn't that one of the hottest peppers there is? Adam on Man V Food always had a terrible time trying to eat them.

Yes, BT, how to you use your ghost peppers. I use mine in chili, and to show off as I can eat them without pain. I grew some habanero peppers this year that, for whatever reason, seem to be hotter than my ghost peppers, and with a concentrated pepper flavor as well. I've been using them very sparingly. They're great when added to brothy soups. They're also pretty tasty in bean soup.
