I'm pleased with the way the eggplants look. After removing the 3 treehopper nymphs and a quick spray with nasty stuff (Sevin), they seem to be doing well. Some fruits are beginnning to form. Many blossoms. The 2 plants girdled by the treehoppers lost all their original leaves, but have many little new leaves coming and even those plants, though small, look sort of OK now. I check closely for more hoppers, but haven't found any more. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
