Peppers on a Post

This is a photo from Otawara Tochigi-ken that I took last August. Along one of the streets there were potted pepper plants attached to posts along several blocks of the street.

  1. Potted peppers seem very popular in Tochigi as ornamental plants. We've been giving them as gifts and such. :-)

  2. I want to grow some of these at my house. Actually after this whole incident, I feel like growing as much food as I can at home - which will probably amount to herbs.

  3. It appears to be a drive-through of sorts.

  5. @Sixmats - My Father-in-Law in Otawara grows a lot of tomatoes in his yard.

    @Chris - Good luck finding any Peter's in Otawara. :)

  6. Peppers in pots as ornamental plants? For someone who eat peppers raw for bite, that is just waste! Gimme that pepper!

  7. If by chance, you are at a supermarket up that, look for something called "oyaji sauce." It's a red pepper paste often times found in Korean cuisines. Not sure if it's still sold or not. I know I can't get it down here in lower kanto, but upper Kanto areas should have them.

  8. Wow, that seems so random! Though I guess if you needed a bit of spice for dinner, you could just pop down to the lamp post, ha!

  9. Lina, you would love that street then. You could take a long walk and be popping peppers the whole way. :)
