The Red Robin experiment.

This past Monday I ate at Red Robin where I sampled their excellent Burnin’ Love burger that comes served with a whole jalapeño pepper on top of the burger. After downing my meal, I noticed there were two jalapeño seeds left on my plate, so I wrapped them in the thin paper used to wrap straws and took the seeds home, where I’m about to try growing them.

After letting the seeds dry for a few days, I put them in some moistened peat pellets I had sitting in the tray of my seed starting kit.

Then I put the lid on the tray and put it on top of my refrigerator where it’s warm and free from drafts. I’ll check it occasionally to make sure it’s got plenty of water and will post an update if anything happens. Stay tuned.

No red robins were harmed during the making of this post.
