Edward Clifford of London proudly displays a red cayenne pepper, which he believes is the first homegrown seasonal produce of Madison County. Clifford, who is an avid gardener, took a cutting from a donor pepper plant, treated it with a root hormone and put it in the soil. The cutting grew foliage and eventually some blossoms. One became a pepper. He recently moved the plant outdoors and the weather allowed the pepper to become bright red. But, it won’t be there for long. He plans to harvest it, dry it and grind it to season his food. “I like things hot,” Clifford said. Do you have gardening photos to share?
