    Your cat looks like a Beatrix Potter cat! (My daughter says it looks like Mittens. I thought Tabitha Twitchet but I'm not the expert here.)

    No help on the upside down peppers, I'm afraid. That is bizarre looking.

    Chili plants that grow under a blue moon invert their seed pods. Scientists have been unable to determine why this happens, but it does seem to be a documented fact. June had a blue moon. All the local chili plants have inverted seed pods as well.

    I was kidding, btw. I have no idea why your chilis are upside down. I did notice that the chilis used for landscaping decoration all have inverted seed pods, and I did wonder why, so I made up a little story...

    Perhaps you've hit on the truth by accident. Or maybe I ought to ask my cat why she is looking so suspicious.

    Yeah, I was thinking "Strange, my bell peppers do not seem to be growing upside down. Maybe it's because they aren't chilis. Hmmmm . . . "
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    what i imagined that cat thinking while watching a geoff get all up in his business with a camera cracked me up.

    let's just say the words, "any closer and i'll shove your precious chili straight up your... yeah, you better back the hell off" came to mind.
