Suggestions for 2011?

I'm collecting seeds for my 2011 garden and am wondering what recommendations people had.

first: what i use them for - Primarily I dry my peppers and grind them into some delicious powdered spices in the fine setting on my coffee grinder. I also can salsa, pickle peppers and eat them in fajitas as a snack or quick meal.

I have a source for my Serrano and jalapeno peppers, I bought some nice prolific producers last year but did not save the seeds so i will hope they are the same plants this year.

I would love a good meaty large cayenne, recommendations for large or well producing jalapenos for making chipotle next fall, recommendations for Serrano, and I would love to grow some super hots or anything else that would be good dried and ground to give me a unique flavor to add to my recipes and kitchen spice cabinet.

ALSO I am interested in various other veggies and beneficial insect attracting flowers to control populations of beetles and caterpillars (thats how that works right?)

have a good one, I will be burning off my garden as soon as the wind dies down.

If you are looking for something with a great/unique flavor I suggest trying some aji's.I've tried aji limon,aji yellow, and aji benito and they are all excellent!I will be growing beni highlands and aribibi gusano this year also which are supposed to be great for unique flavor also.As far as pickling peppers go I love monkey face peppers.As far as super hots go I think the yellow 7 pod is by far the tops.

A nice base for powder is Poblano/Ancho.

One that has a really unique flavor is the Fatalii.
