Home Gardening 101

After a summer of constant rain and cool nights I had resigned myself to the fact that my eggplant was only going to be ornamental this year.

So imagine my delight in early March when I discovered 2 baby eggplants emerging from their blossoms!

I love watching eggplants grow. They are so shiny and smooth and so elegantly designed.

Planting them next to the back door was a superb idea. I can check on their progress every day. They brightened even the darkest of moods.

And the anticipation! The moussaka recipes flitting through my mind! Oh joy.

  1. It’s been almost eight months since you posted this, but it’s never too late to say congratulations. Home gardening is a long term commitment, which is why it’s easy to lose enthusiasm when you encounter pests and other problems. But, I bet seeing your eggplant grow removed all of your anxiety. I hope your garden’s continuing to grow!
