Here is an update about the plant that Jessica sent me. It did turn out to be a pepper plant after all! When I first got the plant in a can I was happy that it was such a cute gift. A plant in a can people! Can it get any cuter. And I wondered what it would grow to be. But I didn't realize what Capsium meant. Duh it means pepper and one of you guys said that you thought it could be a pepper plant. And it is. So after the white flowers wilted in its place grew green peppers and now they turned red. Capsium is one of the ingredients in pepper. The Capsium ingredient is also one of the ingredients in anti itching ointments. Brits and Australians use the word capsicum instead of the word pepper. But the can says Capsium. One more word to add to the British words I already knew.

Two funny shows I like: Stroker and Hoop and the Andy Milonakis Show. I'm also excited about The Gilmore Girls coming back on tonight. Also if you're a NYC resident please vote tonight. Thanks. Oh and good riddance.

Hey Ani -we actually say capsicum. I think it must come from the latin or something :-)

And what a great present that is. If I wasn't such a plant killer I would be very interested in having one too!

Helloooo! Ayy I spelled it wrong!!! Plant killer?

What a cool plant. They sell ones sorta like this at the farmers' market near us. I should get one. Maybe I can keep it alive for a week or 2? :)

Can you eat the peppers???

foodiechickie said...

Very neat. Yes get one. I am sure yours will last a while. Mine has. I just had to be patient with it growing. I haven't tried yet because it is pretty, but I don't see why now.

What a cute pepper plant!

Thank you!

Jessica said...

Hurray! Congrats on the peppers. I might just have to go out and buy me one of them. They had flowers in cans too! I don't have much of a "green thumb" though

foodiechickie said...

Thanks again Jessica. It took me a long time to have one. So I am sure you will be great!

We always leave our peppers on the plant too long and they get kind of shriveled! So cute, though!

That is cool, a pepper in a can. They look like HOT peppers.
I am looking forward to Survivor starting this week and soon I hope, Amazing Race my all time favourite show.
Cheers, Shelagh

So, you think plant in a can is a cute idea? Well, at post offices (or post shops) around Australia they sell 'kangaroo in a can' which is basically a little toy kangaroo stuffed in a can ready to be shipped to impressed nephews and nieces in Norway (or elsewhere)...super cute.
Oh, and are the capsicums edible?

foodiechickie said...

Hmmmm maybe I should try to eat them now Laura. Although they are pretty cute. Ay problems.

Have fun with the shows! Yes it does look like hot peppers.

That is pretty cute too Tisane.
