Photo of the week: Chile Pepper Christmas
This is a colorful group of chile pepper decorations for fall and the holiday season, sold at the Sichler Farms produce stand in Albuquerque, New Mexico (820 San Mateo NE, 2 blocks south of Lomas. (505) 255-3338.
The produce stand is open daily August through October, and when I visited this past October, they were roasting chiles in big tumbling barrel roasters in the parking lot, and it smelled divine.
It’s a typical fall scent in this part of New Mexico; grab some freshly-roasted peppers if you’re ever in town during the season.
