The chile year 2011

A short update :-)

I have had a tradition to start my first seeds on January 1st. But this year will be different. We have been away in India for a couple of weeks, and have just arrived home.

So, I will decide on this year's theme, and let you know as soon as the new seeds are in soil!

Happy New Year!



  1. Wow, that must have been a nice trip. Also a good way of minimise the X-mas/New years stress. Where in India did you go? Did you find any interesting seeds?

  2. Hi Jan! Thank you for the seeds!

    We went to Kerala (Trivandrum/Thiruvananthapuram) for an ayurvedic panchakarma. An interesting experience! It was fantastic! So, as you say, no X-mas / New years stress, and instead of eating and drinking too much, we have been on a strict vegetarian diet. No sugar, no coffee, no alcohol and no meat! I lost two kilos :-)

    I found a few dried chiles, but they looked too similar to the ones I already have. So for the first time in my life I resisted to buy chiles... Nothing to grow, but we bought different kinds of curries, cardamom and spices.
