Back to the squirrel. Remembering something I read on the Internet, I bought some hot peppers, they were unnamed at the supermarket and were checked in by the supermarket kid as "chilli peppers". I cut one up and sprinkled it over the ground of the pots and nearby on the wooden floorboard.
Then I rubbed my eye. In agony, my eye full of capsaicin, I ran to the bathroom and poured water all over my face. Hope the squirrel likes the peppers.

Two free events that may be of interest to some of you, the second annual twenty four hour Trenton art festival is this weekend. Sort of fun. Last year featuring dollar beer.
Further afield in New York, David Byrne of Talking Heads has a weird installation where an organ is played and sounds of jack hammers and other noises recorded in New York are activated, depending on the keys hit by the player. In a real funky location at the Marine terminal near the Staten Island Ferry. You can always tell a good show. It's free but you have to sign a waiver. Guess if there is falling plaster that hits somebody David Byrne doesn't want to get sued.

As you can tell from the picture, last year I had a very large crop of cayenne peppers. I offered them to people but usually they told me, " I have ulcers" or " I have a bad stomach" or "I can't eat peppers, sorry". I ended up freezing most of them and I ate them all winter. Of course there were the ones I put out in the break room at work. The break room vultures took them.

If you look real close, you can see the blossom on the plant. The plants in the collards garden are getting big too.
