I went to Behnke's to judge the Chili Cookoff today, but the real news is that Karen won this cool metal flamingo

She really needed another one; there aren't more than 50 of 'em in the garden now, mostly plastic. And maybe a hundred more in the house. Apparently after she bought her own 10$ worth of tickets, both Stephanie and I added a few to raise the odds. One probably would have been enough; what's meant to be is meant to be. I only wish Ruth Dix could have been there.

(Behnke's is a fine nursery, Chili Peppers are plant material, and flamingos live in the this is a legitimate gardening post.)

Judging chili..another of your many talents! And the flamingo is totally cool.

I used to think you needed to know something to judge chilis, but it turns out all you need are opinions?!? I do have them!
