  • Description


    My wife and I have a house and green-house on the coast (Ocean view). We are growing chillis to make our own sauce. In the long run we aim to be able to grow enough of our own chillies and commercialize our sauce. But at the moment we have only 2 plants. I only make 2-3 batches a year.
    Our house is walking distance of the most popular snorkeling spot on Penghu Island, and we love to snorkel and SUP. .
