Using the food we grow does not have to be a big production. We can get flavor and enjoyment in easy and small ways. Take, as an example, this little jalapeno pepper. These things are easy to grow, and while they are excellent when used fresh, they can last a very long time when dried. I take a very fine grater and run this pepper across it over eggs or salad or whatever. A little bit of growing goes a long ways toward changing an otherwise sometimes boring egg breakfast.
