Poblano Chili PlantWow! I didn’t realize it had been almost 6 months since my last post. Work got really, really busy. We had a bit of a break during the Holidays, and then came back full force!

I have found time to start up gardening. I am tired of high produce prices and low quality, gassed and hot house tomatoes, and having to spend almost $3.00 for herbs that cost that much for the seed.

This year I am growing Anaheim chili’s, cilantro, and basil. Being a Sonoran Cuisine Chef, the more chili’s I can grow, the better my salsa!

I am hoping to make ready and plant several tomato plants. Living in Southern Arizona I’ve always been scared to grow them, but if I do it right, then they’ll seed for the next year.

I’m hoping to take pictures over the next couple days and post them here.
If anyone knows of good gardening sites for Southern Arizona, please let me know.

Oh yeah, and I have been making lots of yummy food. I just haven’t had the time to write about it. One night I had ultimate inspiration, and made coconut-lemongrass tofu with herb dumplings. It was out of this world. When I wrote out the recipe it involved something like twenty ingredients (most of them spices–for the curry of course).
