If peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers how many pickled peppers did peter piper pick?

== Peter Piper picked "a" peck of pickled peppers, therefore Peter Piper picked one peck of pickled peppers. == Peter Piper did not pick any pickled peppers. You have to pick the peppers, then pickle them. == Peter Piper purchased a peck of pickeled peppers in bulk. He went to the grocers where they are availiable, and picked out a peck and went through the checkout lane with his purchase. A peck is a quarter of a bushel (there are 4 pecks in a bushel), so this is not unrealistic. The issue might be that it would take several containers to pack them in. It's a bit on the odd side, though, because a peck is measure of volume, and you would usually expect pickeld peppers to sell by weight in the same manner as pickles. But it is still very doable for Mr. Piper to pick a peck of pickled peppers. He might pick them by the peck (volume) and then pay for them by weight.
