It's an 11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Well, here it is ... Mark's first Thai pepper...when we bought at Wal-Mart there where red signs all over the pots and display that this was a very hot pepper. Okay.........

As you can see, it is quite small...but as it turns out, this one is not even fully ripe...there are some ripe ones on the bush and they are fire engine red!


He takes the bite and.............



Ah..........is it hot dear? Can you talk dear? Are you okay?


Still no comment, but some sounds are coming from his body. He did dance around a bit too.

Now he is trying to get air in the mix...doesnt oxygen promote fire?!! Needless to say, on the pepper scale of 1-10 (there is one ya know) Mark states this little Thai gem is a full 11! His eyes waters for quite awhile. He can't wait to harvest more the maniac :-)

Hello down there in the "Lower UP"... I found your blog via Quiting Bloggers and have been lurking at it for a while... Good to see you like Miller Light ( our UP diet) Any way , I figured I'd come out and say hello as we're neighbors, so to speak, and it's always good to meet up with other quilters, especially when we share the type of winter that lies close. I especially thought of you when I saw this post from my bud in NV...

oh that post is too cute, I love it, you are married to one brave man or maybe a crazy one? lol.

by the way, I was told today that Walnut Hollow should be adding the metal to the website at the end of the week.This is a different metal than I have been using in the past. This one only comes in one weight. It is thinner but a little stiffer than the pewter.
