I think when we mention eating Chile's, most people think of the Jalapeño. I do think it is the most popular Chile here in the United States. But guy's there are thousands of Chile's to choose from. Granted you may have to grow them yourself or maybe get them from a local grower. You don't have to like hot pepper to enjoy something different. There are so many sweet variety's, and I am not just talking Bell pepper either. I can tell you, for me Bell and Jalapeño Chile's taste real grassy after eating some of the other Chile's. I do like both hot Chile's and sweet Chile's. I like the jalapeño but don't do the bells. Bell's are OK if they are red and roasted, green and raw are just nasty. By the way a green Chile is one that is not ripe yet. So don't be afraid to venture out and enjoy good a Chile.
I will post some of my favorite Chile photos soon.

Not really, just new to me. We bought this pineapple from the market. Me being me thought why not plant this thing. So with an INTERNET search, and now knowing more about pineapple than I ever wanted to know. I planted this pineapple top and it started to grow. That was four years ago. It really never did anything but look like a very large pineapple top. I was getting kinda tired dragging it in each winter and putting it back out in the spring. That plant has now taken on a new life, yep its blooming. I do think I may get a pineapple, maybe not. But it sure is pretty right now. Hope you think so to.
Pineapple plant with bloom.

I know some people are having floods and surly don't need rain. But as usual I am not happy with the weather. We need rain really bad. I had said in my last post that I was just working around the yard. Well I still am, I do like our yard, I do love plants. But just trying to keep things growing (green) with it being so dry is tough. Course it will start raining then I will have to complain about it being too wet. Oh Well. Here is a photo of part of what I am doing.
This photo is looking out our front door.
