The eggplant purchased from in front of the grocery store is kicking butt! It has something like 7 blossoms and is growing vigorously. To understand my excitement, know that all the blossoms dried up and fell off of last year's eggplant (instead of bearing fruit), and the eggplant seeds I planted this spring grew 2 inches tall and refused to grow any bigger. So for eggplants to be actually happening in my yard is something special! Here's the progression from yesterday morning to tonight. Check out the purple fruit!
