"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

Piquanté Pepper winner

RMan did the deed.

On Sunday morning, whilst we were sitting at the dining room table I held my hat towards him and said, "Shake the contents."
I wrote all the name on a piece of paper
and then cut out identically sized scraps
before placing all of them in my hat
Closing his eyes - I have no idea why because every scrap of paper was folded identically, he put his hand in the hat, gave it, and the contents a twirl round, and pulled out one of the pieces.

Wafting it in the air, dramatically he said, "And the winner is..." before handing it to me to open lol

Chickpea - you're the recipient of the piquanté pepper seeds :)
Chickpea's name was pulled form the hat.
All the seed packets are ready to post off.
You'll notice that the name of the seed packet
is written upside down on the envelope.
That's because when you plant the seeds
you can hang the little envelope on a stick
near the seedlings (right way up) in order to

help you identify what you've planted there :)
Chickpea - please send me an e-mail with your address.  The next time we go through to town I'll post them off to you.
