Does anyone have any recipes that call for chile peppers of any kind? I need them for my ever-expanding pepper guide project. Also accepting title suggestions, like Get a Real Hobby, Loser.
I got some work done on the garden after work today, until I died of heat exhaustion. Actually it was pretty chilly today, but to protect myself from those sweat bee abominations I was gardening in jeans, a long-sleeved turtleneck, heavy gardening gloves, and my beekeeper hat. And shoes and socks, of course. Absolutely no skin was exposed directly to the outside air. It worked, but after an hour I was drenched in sweat and couldn't even wipe it out of my eyes without taking off a glove (danger!) and lifting up my beekeeper veil (danger! danger! sweat bee alert!).
I'm going to be the pastiest gardener in the world this year. Apparently these sweat bees are not usually very bad, but this year they're everywhere--one of our neighbors says they're cyclical, like cicadas. They do not, of course, bother my mother. Apparently I smell better. To BUGS.
