Almost time to start.

Yes its almost time to start making new baby plant. I like to plant my seed in December. So by planting time I will have some strong plants. Our planting time is mid April. I have found that some Chile seed that I plant germinate very slow (not all) The Chile pequin is the slowest I have, it takes almost 6-8 weeks. I over winter a few plants in the house, just because.
 New Chile for the coming year is Pimiento de Padron. This is a Spanish frying Chile from Spain. I have never eaten them but have seen reports saying that they are very good.

The recipes that I find are quite simple, Fry in olive oil until Chiles start to blister and have a slight char. remove and sprinkle with sea salt. Eat with a good bread. It is said that one in ten are hot.
 Sounds like my kind of food.
