Friday 7th Spetember 2012 – Got to the allotment really early, felt a bit odd.

Well George cycled to school on his own today. He’s now in year 6 so he’s allowed to do it. Once he left at 8.20am I did the usual bits that I tend to do when I get back from the school run. Just before 9am I was finished so I went down the allotment. No one was about, and the grass was very damp with dew. I don’t think I’ve ever been down that early before. Got loads done in just over 2hours though. I weeded another couple of beds, harvested a load more white onions, a few runner beans, had a tidy round the compost heap and dug up a few rogue potatoes from last year. Not sure what type they are, but they’re reds and have grown really large. The weekend looks great, so it’s a BBQ tomorrow and we’ll eat outside. Will be just like Spain (except no pool.)

    What can you tell me about ghost peppers I can’t find any way to use them!!

    • Wow, they’re hot!! Personally I would suggest the best way to use them is to dry them thoroughly in the sun, then crush them into flakes. That way you can use a very small amount at a time in various dishes – curry, spice up pasta, rice dishes, whatever you want really. Drying them in the sun (or airing cupboard) tends to take some of the heat away from chillies. Once they’re dry, they’ll keep for years.
      I hope this helps.
