One thing I am learning with gardening, do not expect to grow exactly what you may find in the store.
Store produced is so controlled and mass grown and picked through before shipping that everything is pretty uniform all the odd colored, or shaped produce gets picked out. In our gardens however we get to see exactly what mother nature has the ability to do to our fruits and veggies. I grew bell peppers last year and they turned out tiny! Then a huge worm critter thing ate them all in one night. (1 plant 3 peppers) all gone over night.
My jalapenos turned black this year
but boy are they spicy and yummy!!! Not something I think I would find at the store though.
Gardening can bring such fun and weird surprises our way!
