The Tale of the Missing Ghost
Our ghost chile peppers have been disappearing. For the past few weeks every time one ripened, it vanished.
Today, we found out who has been the culprit - a chipmunk! His face bursting with a deep orange explosion of color, "Chile Chip" was spotted scurrying to his hidey-hole which must be a pretty hot spot.
We appeal to you, Chile Chip - "Give up the ghost!"
We’ll be harvesting all our chiles on Saturday, October 12 at 11am. All chileheads are invited to join us as we divide the bounty!
