Summary Edit

Aunt Janie teaches Pepper Ann about organic food. When Mr. Carter gives an assignment to the class to grow their own gardens, Pepper Ann decides to make hers completely organic.

When she finds out that Dieter is growing his under artificial light and spraying them with pesticides, she bets him that her organic garden can beat out his "garden of the future". But growing organic isn't as easy as Pepper Ann originally thought...


Pepper Ann: You're not Aunt Janie at all, are ya?! Off with the wig, Dieter!
Lydia: Is this...?

Janie: Tofu coffee. It's healthier than that junk you drink.

Lydia: Real coffee! Now!
Judge: Tastes like...bacon?
Dieter: That's just a little side effect of crossing it with a pig gene.
