Yes, La Tomatina is a typical summer party from Buñol, neighbors and visitors throw tons of ripe tomatoes at each other for a whole day, it's a funny tomato war!

Greetings SiCKNeSs.

I'm in denial about the end of summer, but the wildflowers don't lie.

Amazingly, I just saw a hummingbird at the feeder, but she's got to be a straggler, probably from further north.

The weather is still good, more fruits are getting ripe.

I'm training a Peruvian as ornamental.

In a slant style. It's the only plant that still has it's ripe fruits on it, now.

I sliced the Peruvian peppers in half, and pickled them, along with the twenty dried ones.

And I used most of the Jalapenos for the stuffing of the next Bell.

Yes, @saxo, only mammals. Birds don't feel the heat either. It's funny to watch a parrot eat a very hot pepper.

You can use hot peppers to repel elephants. That works well for me, not an elephant in sight!

Keep the tomato wars but leave the Bulls alone unless they allow them to be unaltered/drugged in anyway to face the matador !

@saxo: I think they do it in a different way in India . They use a rope as a fence around agricultural crops. The rope is impregnated with chilli paste. No need for dung and fire.

Chilli paste can probably stop a groundhog from climbing up a tree.

right,i was watching a tv report about that. in Africa they do it the same way .....they use textiles/tissues soaked in chilli paste/chilli tea .....they just forgot to refresh the chilli-paste every week (or two) ,so the elephants simply run down the fence and eat up all the crop.
