I know I'm not the only one who has accidentally picked up the wrong plant at a garden center. Knowing that doesn't make me any less annoyed.
Saturday morning Hubby and I got up extra early and drove 40 minutes to watch the sun rise over the ocean. For those of you who prefer to sleep in on weekends, this is what it looks like:
Yes, there are young adults swimming. There were several young adults watching the sunrise. We were at Seaside Heights. My guess is they stayed up all night.
But I digress.
On the way home we stopped at Lowes. It was about 6:30 am. For those of you who like to sleep in, it may surprise you to know that Lowes is open at 6:30 am. I think it may open at 6. Home Depot also. However, the garden center gates were not open and there were no carts in the parking lot. So I walked over to the plants that were outside and grabbed a tomato (plum) and found the section that said Jalapeno. I saw the front plant also said Jalapeno and grabbed three. My hands were full, the plants were soaking wet and I didn't have a cart, so I never looked at the two other peppers I purchased. Until I planted them.
They are cayenne peppers. Oops. Now what do I do? I've never grown cayenne. I'll need to research growing and using this hot pepper. I don't even think I've ever cooked with a cayenne that wasn't in powder form.
Perhaps later in the day this time.
