You could always pull off the smaller peppers for cooking and call them "gourmet petite peppers". The stores always charge more for those.

But can you say the whole thing?

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, how many pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick?

We have a small patio apple tree that usually produces 2-3 apples. This year we have NINE apples. Throughout the winter I used coffee grounds and eggshells sprinkled on the pot. Must have worked, the leaves were beautiful and the apples are juicy.

We planted apple trees and a pear and a plum (RIP 2 years ago) about 30 years ago, and never had much of a crop of any of them, though the plums were pretty good some years.....pears good some years.
This year and I've heard this from others too, the apples are great. We probably have a few 1000 apples now, we've never had that before. It may be a bounty year for apples. I'm not sure what we will do with them, this year, we'll just try to put them up some how.

For the first time in at least 4 years, I won't have to do drive-by apple drop-offs. My usually extremely prolific tree has one, maybe two apples this year. Glad it's finally taking a year off!

As long as you don't go buying them so you can drop them off. You know, those folks are counting on your apples each year...
