Eggplant spendour

Categories EdiblesPosted on

One of the hottest, sunniest spots we have is our second floor deck, so this is where we are growing one of our eggplants. It is in a railing planter right up against our table where we eat as many meals as possible all summer. So the eggplant is like an ornament for our meals, and a rather splendid one at that! Just setting the first fruit now, we have more blooms coming and are also enjoying the view of the purple blush on the stems and leaves, especially the undersides, which we will be seeing up close more and more as the plant begins to grow over our heads.
