In time for Halloween ...

Today, with much joy, I discovered that my ghost pepper plant has borne fruit.  It's small still, and green.  But, if the weather holds, I could harvest a good ghost pepper this year.  What I'd do with it isn't clear, since they're so spicy -- more than 100 times as hot as a jalapeño -- that even if you made a bathtub full of chili with a single ghost pepper, it might still be too hot.  But, for now, I must just hope that this is a problem which I'll have to solve when (if!) the peppers get ripe.  ...  Happy Halloween!!
