2. add ornamental hot peppers and cherry tomatoes to that list!

They tend to bear abundantly, so one can't harvest them all - whatever drops on the ground tends to return. Though, if they are a hybrid cherry tomato, it is as likely to be quite different from the variety you planted (half of the fun!)
