Beautiful foggy mornings

The last few mornings around here have been quiet and blanketed in fog, which doesn’t burn off early, rather lasting until mid morning. This is the view out the back of our house from the balcony. The line of trees is barely visible.

In other news, I just harvested our last bunch of habanero peppers and cut them open to dry. If I’ve just finished a firing, I can often use the last bit of heat in the kiln to dry the peppers out completely. Have to hold my breath when I open the kiln though. Those habanero fumes are killer. Once they’re dry I powder them in my spice mill (if you do this don’t breathe when you open the spice mill, better yet do it outside) and bottle them for future use.
