Veggie Views

The Japanese eggplants that we planted in May are finally becoming real eggplants that we can eat. Isn't this exciting?

Also here's a look at our cucumbers...

Hiya! Eggplants look great! How do you know when they're ready to pick? I've got one teeny one, but am not sure if I should leave it on the vine for a while longer. Also, how do you keep the plants straight up like that? Mine is bent over, and the eggplant is touching the dirt. Thanks and more later! Jean

Hi Jean! I use a stick and some string to hold the plants up straight. I guess, the eggplants are ready when it "looks" ready. The Japanese eggplants grow to about 8 inches or so.

I cooked some in a pan the other day with olive oil, a little pepper, and garlic -- pretty good. I also used the eggplants in some meatloaf. -W.
