Got there around 1pm; apparently the 70 types of tomatoes, 16 kinds of basil, and all the hottest peppers went in a mad rush in the first hour this morning at 9 when they opened. "it was such a polite mob" said one of the gardeners.
I bought a Piment d'Espelette, a "Sparky" hot pepper, both in 4" pots from the master gardeners side of the world;
In sweets I found a Red, an Orange, a Yellow bell; also a White, to try it.
The chocolate and lavendar peppers just don't taste as good to me, and when you cook them the color disappears. blah.
I also brought home a Piment de Padrone from the Happy Quail Farms booth; They're apparently neighbors in East Palo Alto, and are the only folks propagating this pepper in North America. (Yes, I'll save seeds!)
Lise and I plot out how we think we'll place the straw bales, and how many of what we're really going to plant out there.
