This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

an eggplant that was

eggplant
My Mom saw this eggplant in my garden this evening and asked if she could pick it for our dinner. Sometimes I think things look too nice to pick. But what can you say to your mother? It was very nice grilled.

Mine are just about ready too! I never know what to do with them because they are so tasteless. I think I will make a Moussaka.

Moussaka sounds great.

I had 3 eggplant plants this year. I had 1 dancer and 2 ichiban. I was very pleased with their production. They just kept producing. The only problem was...eggplant disgusts me. I had never really eaten them before so I decided to grow them and try them for myself. However, no matter how I cooked them I couldn't get over the texture. Oh well, the produced great, just not the veggie for me.
