Today's theme for the Photo Friday challenge is edible. Here's my answer to such a challenge, a photo from my files (click here for a larger version):

Last summer we planted three little jalapeno plants outside our apartment window. The landlady had given me permission to cultivate a little patch of neglected ground out there, and while my own mind went toward flowers, foliage plants, and herbs, Eddie (those are his hands in the picture) decided he wanted to try hot peppers. For some reason I had my doubts as to how they would do, but they turned out hearty, hardy, and prolific! This year we're hoping to plant some lesser-known Peruvian peppers. I hope they do as well as Eddie's jalapenos.
