I decided to grow a few eggplants in the garden this year.
Something new for our garden.
The plants produced pretty light purple flowers.
patiently checked them every day...
Wondering when the actual eggplant would develop.
This morning I saw a couple little eggplants.
The dark purple against the green leaves (and weeds) made me smile.
Still too small to harvest...
But look...in the background...
Do you see it?
A gigantic eggplant!
How did I miss it before?
Look at the size...
compared to an egg and a large crock.
I'm still laughing!
I did harvest it and will try to saute it tomorrow.
If it's too seedy, the chickens will enjoy quite a treat ...
Our first eggplant!
Have you found anything 'hidden' in your garden lately?
