Hi Liz, and thanks for the offer.  Yes, keep me in mind when these seeds
are ready.  If you have a few left over I'll be happy to take them.  As I
mentioned before, I have a ton of annual seeds that I'm starting to process...

My neighbor grew some habenero's this year and I made a few batches of
chile sauce with them.  Very tasty.   The Hab's do not seem to dry well
when strung up.  They get all black and nasty from the inside out.

Anyway... ristra's do not seem to be much in evidence in my neck of the
woods, everyone is still stuck on the (ugh) kuntry bunny rag dolls and
dressing up stupid cement geese.  I plan to start a new era in the midwest
and sell edible home decor...hmmm now that I think of it.... aren't bunnies
edible (oh gosh I can't believe I said that....please, bunny pet owners....
no flames.... just a joke).

When (if) you have seeds ready to go drop me a line and I'll get a SASE in
the mail to you.

hanging from the vine wearing knitted stocking caps?...quite colorful)
