Malabar Spinach (Basella rubra) (Cylia)
Perennial vine with succulent, round to heart-shaped leaves. Will produce year round in the warm tropics or heated greenhouses. It makes a good container plants and is worth experimenting with as an indoor overwintered edible houseplant. Highly sensitive to nematodes.

Peppers – Ancho (spicy) (Cylia)
Ancho peppers are the dried version of Poblano, or "people" peppers. Their flavor is somewhat sweet and somewhat raisin-like, with medium heat. The outer skin has a rich, sweet, raisin-like flavor, which is most commonly associated with the flavor of the dish chili; the inner veins and of the pepper are hot. (80 days) OP

Peppers – Alma Paprika (warm) » Hungarian heirloom (Cylia)
The round peppers ripen from cream to orange to red and are excellent for drying and grinding into paprika. They are also excellent for eating fresh and have a little bit of warmth to them. (80 days) OP

Peppers – Thai Dragon (Katie)
Loaded with clusters of slender, hot peppers that point up above the leaves on short sturdy plants. Very hot chiles. (85 days) OP

I started a second batch of Red Zebra, since only 1 sprouted from the first batch. Not sure if they'll be ready for the event.

I will bring the leeks as well. I hope to see many friendly faces there.
