October is almost at our doorstep!
As a gardener that means harvesting like crazy to try to beat the first frost.
I have a wheelbarrow full of pumpkin, buckets of squash, baskets of peppers and tomatoes and...
I grew two kinds of eggplant this year...the usual dark purple and these lovely little gems.
They are 'Fairy Tale' from Territorial Seeds. I started them from seed...my first year of growing eggplant. The 5 plants in my garden have done remarkabley well!
They are beautiful but they are puzzling....
I have to admit after a whole summer of trying to cook with them that I am eggplant challenged it seems.
I have tried grilling them on the BBQ, putting them in casseroles, frying, roasting...I even tried baking with them!
They only tasty thing I like so far is roasted on pizza.
Even if it is only to do this...
Growing them for photo props seems like a good reason to add them next year!
