This is the first year I have tried to grow eggplant. My daughter actually got one in an Easter “kit” that one alas, didn’t make it, so I went to our handy dandy Walmart mart and purchased a couple new plants. That was in April, and just now in September we finally have one sole Eggplant to harvest. He/She is a cutie and tasted mighty good as well. I decided to make Eggplant Parmesan with her. She wasn’t big enough to make it just from her, so I had to buy a friend, but it turned out well, and even though my children balked at the thought of eating the cute eggplant, in the end, they ate her just fine. We shall miss her, and hope she has some siblings come soon too.
