It’s been a busy week with work. I’m really trying to squeeze the most out of the summer vegetables while dreaming of fall weather and planting. My cucumber plant is quite prolific it has multiple baby cucumbers throughout the vine. My basil plants are doing well thanks to a slight cool down this week. The tomatoes have been tragically stolen by mice but I’ll get into that in tomorrow’s post. My fall seedlings didn’t work out as it was just too hot but I’ll try again at the end of the month. I really want to have my winter lettuce.
I am very excited to report that my stubborn Eggplant is finally delivering on it’s promises. It’s been filled with flowers for months but it’s just now starting to grow some actual eggplant. It’s timing couldn’t be better since the weather will be cooling off soon. What’s could be better than a hearty eggplant Parmesan on a chilly fall evening?
I think I still have a ways to go before the eggplant is ready but I have been researching possible recipes. Are you an eggplant lover? Do you have any recipes?
