The eggplants are producing again. In early August, they seemed to stop producing any flowers, and it was rather sad.
But within the last two weeks, all of my eggplants have gotten a second wind. One of the ichabod eggplants has two beautiful eggplants that are growing very lean and beautiful. They do have a few scars on them, but for the most part, they are elegant and long. I'm not sure when to harvest them. I'm afraid of I pick them too soon, they will be too immature. I might wait another week or so and then pick it. Maybe I'll make a casserole of some kind.

My Black Beauty eggplant has not produced AT ALL this season. It's very depressing. The plant does have some flowers now, but I am not holding out hope. It'll be good if I do get some eggplants from it, but I won't count on it.
Have a great weekend!
