Jane Powers writes the gardening column in the Irish Times on Saturday, the main reason why I buy it, (although I'm also a bit curious as to how Roisin Ingle gets on with the twins). I was thrilled to open the paper last night and see that she had mentioned Brown Envelope Seeds and that we were top of her list of seed companies. It never occurred to me that having a name beginning with B would be such an advantage. If I ever start another business, I will call it Aardvark laundrette/cinema/toy-shop. She mentioned Firecracker chilis which we find our earliest most reliable hot pepper. Hungarian Hot wax is a terrific, mildly hot and very productive pepper, but Firecracker is the one to put a bit of kick into that bedtime cocoa.
