Should I Become a Pepper Farmer?

As I was watering my plants I started to see a pepper here, a pepper there a pepper everywhere and after counting those I could see I poked around and before I knew it I counted 17 peppers!!!

The amazing thing to me is that I started with a few seeds from one bell pepper thrown into a pot with some dirt in it and here I am with 7 plants all with peppers of different colors and sizes!!

Now I am thinking of taking the 28 house plants I have and growing peppers in all of them and once a month having a 'pepper sale'! There are 0 expenses involved and as far as time goes I have plenty of that---free! I certainly can sell them at a much lower price than the supermarkets charge!

Mmmmmm--I will have to give this some thought! Of course with extra income my rent would go up, I would have to pay taxes, would probably have to hire a lawyer to incorporate a business and then hire an accountant to take charge of my taxes which I would probably forget to declare and/or pay, get charged with avoiding taxes, sent to jail.

On second thought I will just stick to the 7 pots of peppers and the pots of Geraniums, Begonias, miniature Norfolk Pine and various 'Christmas cactus' plants, giving away and/or cooking with whatever peppers I get each month!

That's about how many I got all summer from 11 outdoor plants. You have the touch. Peppers are supposed to be tougher than tomatoes and the rest to grow.
