I finally found the seed packets I ordered from Made in New Mexico last fall, and have started jiffy-pots of Big Jim, Hatch Green, NuMex Joe Parker, and ChimayĆ³ chiles.

Basically , I want to be able to make chili verde and salsa verde anytime I want this summer. And since green chiles don't seem to make it across this side of the Mississippi, I'm going to have to grow them myself.

Oddly enough, there is no option for 'hot pepper' or 'chile pepper' as far as I can tell, so I've got them listed under 'cayenne pepper', which is misleading, at best.
