Habanero Heaven

November surprise
My friend Wilma, the organic farmer, called to tell me that because there had not yet been a hard frost in southern Utah she had more habanero peppers growing on her vines than she knew what to do with. In fact this coming Tuesday (11/15) will break the all-time record for a frost-free fall in Salt Lake City, with no immediate end in sight.

So here in November I'm presented with more peppers than I harvested in all of September and October combined. There will be plenty of hot chili peppers for holiday gifts this year. Put in your orders now if you think I might forget you.

Some heat for the winter
