Happy Monday folks and happy December. Yes who can believe it -- the 1st of December already and not long at all till we eat too much, have some time off work (for most of us) and celebrate the festive season.

However we are not even thinking about that as it's today that's more special to us.

Today WE are 2!! Yes, Galloway Chillies have reached their second birthday.

Who could believe that a wee idea born in October 2012 and launched on the 1st December 2012 could have grown and came so far in such a short time. This wee business has grown due to the love of chillies, great feedback when I first started making Chilli Original and the great support I've had from friends and customers over the last two years.

Who would have thought back in Dec '12 that I'd be writing a blog in two years time after just returning from Borough Market, London where we had been trading for the last three days with other Scottish Producers in a celebration of St. Andrew's day or that I had been shortlisted for awards from both DG Life and Dumfries and Galloway Chamber of Commerce.

What about the winning of a Great Taste gold star within just a few months of trading or that we would win Best Chilli Preserve at the Devon Chilli Fiesta this year with our Chilli Burns.

So much has happened in these last two years and there is still so much going on behind the scenes so expect more updates in the next few months.

Thank you all so much for your continued support and to celebrate this occasion we are launching our online shop today -- the first five customers receiving a free packet of chilli seeds.

Thanks again. We wouldn't be where we are without you.
