Sockburn Chillies

This years crop of chillies have a kick beyond anything else I've grown here in the Sockburn Rez. A colleague at Manaaki Whenua - Mexican, so he should know - thinks they're a variety of habanero. He also gave the name "Scotch Bonnets". The maize crop is also shaping up to be a good one, although some ears are being nibbled by mice.

That's the habanero on the right...

...and the beautiful maize grown from seeds sourced through Nick Roskruge at Massey University.
