Pepper Party 3

I picked my first bell pepper. Since I started so late in the season I'll have to settle with a yellow one. That's the ripest it will get now that it's getting cold out. It was delicious though, nice and sweet...

As for my beautiful cayennes, I tried to dry one out in the toaster over but instead of drying it I...toasted it. 

Attempt #2 seems to be working. Just letting it hang out.

And as for the jalepenos, the late start caused me to yield only the smallest fruit that probably wont get much bigger at this point (except for that one I picked earlier)...

Oh well. But with the seeds I've saved from this years crop, and some better planning, I'm already looking forward to next spring.

Wood you buy this?

Maybe if I could afford it...this finely crafted FSC certified specimen was on display at Greenbuild 2010 and sells for well over $6000. Even though it only weighs 16 pounds, with the way I abuse bicycles, it aint worth it...

Greenbuild '10

Greenbuild 2010 in Chicago, is the Lend Lease booth...

Colin Powell was the opening plenary speaker.

 This audience may be tough...

Wait a minute, I'm Colin freakin Powell... 

Green buildings, grandkids, communists and thank you cards...

The closing plenary...

Rick Fedrizzi doing "The Clap" 

Richard Daley telling us all why he's a bomb ass mayor. 

Yes, HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan looks like he is 11 years old.
