J Is For Jalapeno

Jack-o-lanterns.
Hmmmppppffffhhhh!
Still pumpkins to me.
Come to think of it, I don't know a single person who uses Jack-o-lanterns.
So obviously that won't be what I talk about. I don't do carved up pumpkins anymore anyways. My kids are too old to enjoy it, so why bother? I live vicariously through others.
This time I want to show you something I have to have. Can't live without it, so I grow my own.
Jalapeno peppers.
I love spicy food, and specifically cooking with hot peppers. The store closest to me doesn't always have a decent selection of hot peppers, so I decided to tackle growing them myself.
I have a bit of a green thumb and figured it wouldn't be too hard. (Keep in mind I have no yard to garden in, only my jungle that used to be a living room.)
I was right too!
They are easy to grow, and I have yielded enough to pass around to my friends as well. Though not too many, I don't ever want to be without.
The only other food resource I grow is parsley. Grows like a weed and is also really easy to grow. I don't use it too often, but it is nice to always have on hand.

What food resources do you grow??

  1. I am exactly the opposite in that I never do jalepenos and I love jack-o-lanterns.

  2. Excellent choice for J! Although I can't eat too many of them. My newest addition to my garden this year, is that I'm growing herbs inside my small greenhouse, and a pick of surprises (mixed several goodies together, and the squash is up already!

  3. Now as an adult, I tend to spice up everything I eat. If I have pizza, I usually spice it up with some jalapenos or red pepper flakes.

  4. Although there are many foods I would love to eat, my stomach does not share my desires to indulge in the spicy. I do understand the urge to toss a bit of heat into some foods, it just seems to enhance all the other flavors of the dish. Oh well, at least I can still smell the lovely aromas!

  5. Jalapeño peppers are yummy in many foods, but I won't work with them after experiencing the burn that the oil causes to my hands. lol Great "J" post. Great to meet you and thanks for stopping by!

  6. I have no green thumb and can hardly keep a plant alive, so I don't grow anything but I've always like fresh fruits especially strawberries.

    thanks for your visit, hope you have a sweet day.

  7. I am a wuss when it comes to hot peppers but I am growing tomatoes and cucumbers and a green pepper plant finally has a flower on it :)

  8. We love hot peppers. They grow quite easily here in AZ as well.

    Herbs are something I always try and grow. It's nice to throw a sprinkle into a bland dish.

    This was just a fun link for the letter "J".

    Thanks for sharing it.

    A+

  9. I love jalepenos and hot foods...but I can only eat a little bit of hot...and even if it is a little bit, I get beads of perspiration on my nose! I am a wimp, but still do love it.

    I hope to have a little raised garden next summer. and I want to grow some herbs inside too.

    Blessings & Aloha!
    Jumping for Joy! I am finally catching up to some of my "J" visits! Please come by if you have a chance.

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
