Shocks me too, and that is the reason I am poor.

Loaded up superhots sell, especially if you tout their testosterone raising powers, or at least that's what the youngins believe when they scarf them down.
I took some to market and sold almost all. For the men, testosterone-hair on your chest.

For the ladies just have them visualize the male in their lives that likes spicy food, and how with these peppers they can make them cry. You will see a smile form and they'll buy it.

Anything with fruit on should be an easy sell IMO!! I've always thought that micro toms would be a great product for late fall or pre-christmas markets. Who wouldn't want a little fruiting plant in the house when winter's coming on!!

Another Saturday, another colorful market table. The dust on the sunflowers is diatomaceous earth. I have gotten lazier about washing it off. Telling the customer what it is makes for good conversation.

Your blooms are pristine as always! I love the variety of petal shapes and colors on the zinnias..
