Excited About Eggplant
I may have eaten eggplant once in my life. I'm not even sure. But when I was picking up some veggie plants at a local garden centre this year, I saw a four-pack of "Fairytale" eggplants and I thought, "why not?" And as they grow, I am becoming more and more excited about them. I love the purple flowers. They're prettier if you look directly into the centre, but I was trying to get at them without crushing any of the surrounding plants and so this is the photo that I ended up with. Not perfect, but you can see that they are definitely fun. I've been looking up moussaka and baba ganoush recipes and I am basically just dreaming about carrying a basket of beautiful purple fruit home from my garden plot. And so far, not one Colorado potato beetle to be found. What is new to your garden this year?
