A friend was supposed to come visit tomorrow, and I’ve been really looking forward to it, tidying up the patio and everything. I was so sad when she called today to let me know she’d been potentially exposed to Covid, and tomorrow will be too soon to know whether she’s gotten infected. We had an open-hearted conversation about details and timeline, about risks and possibilities, and all with good cheer and understanding, we concluded it would be best if she doesn’t come. Better safe than sorry! We’ll visit another time, when there are no heavy questions hanging overhead. I am so very grateful for her honesty and integrity in broaching this uncomfortable issue. There are people I know who, given the uncertainties involved, might well have simply made a decision to come anyway without giving me all the information. Where Covid is concerned (as well as with just about any other scenario I can imagine) honesty is the best policy for me. I am always grateful for honesty, even if it means I’m disappointed.
Did you grow the jigsaw peppers from seed? You don’t buy “potted starts” of anything, right? Do you remember where you got the seeds? I’d like to try those here next year. They’re so cute and I love smoky flavors.
I did grow them from seed. I used to buy starts, then started starting from seed. I reserve the right to buy starts if my self-started starts fail! I am learning how early to start them, and how few to start rather than ending up with 30 tomato plants and everyone else has already bought starts so I can’t give them away 😂. If I have ample seeds I’ll send you some, I’ll check. I bought them from Baker Creek, here https://www.rareseeds.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=jigsaw https://www.rareseeds.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=jigsaw. I keep waiting for the purple to change colors. Need to practice more patience!
