Garden Update, Part 3

by frazzledmama on September 17, 2009

Last year, I bought an eggplant plant. (Is that correct?  Or would it just be Eggplant….hold on a sec.)  Sorry, I guess that would be just an eggplant.  Okay, now that we have that settled…

I had never grown eggplant before.  I was very excited about the whole thing.  I did research to make sure that I took care of the plant properly and that I fertilized it just right.  It grew and grew and had tons of blooms….but no egg plants.  Sorely disappointed, I pulled the plant up and figured, oh well.  A few weeks later, I noticed some sprouts where the eggplant had been.  Lo and behold, I had 3 or 4 new eggplants coming up from seeds.  So, I figured, oh well it’s summer, I wasn’t going to grow anything there right now anyways, and I left them to themselves.  A few weeks ago I went out and there was the tiniest bud of and eggplant….isn’t that COOL!

Now, I have several on the bush and all at various stages, including one that is in the refrigerator stage ;)
