Oh HAI, friends! Are you ready for today's garden stroll? Today is really a stroll through time, because we are going to follow our eggplant as it grows up!
|I'm waving "HAI"!|
Back in April we started some seeds indoors for a container Eggplant variety called "Little Prince". Here it is a few weeks after it germinated.
We waited until the temperatures were consistently in the 50's overnight and then we transplanted our seedlings outdoors.
|Baby Eggplant. Do they call them hatchlings? On account of the whole egg thing...|
Soon our eggplants were thriving and they grew to be about 2 - 3 feet tall with pretty purple flowers.
|They have very big leaves. We wish they were catnip. |
Then yesterday we discovered this! Our first little eggplants are forming! We are VERY excited! We've never grown eggplants before.
|They have prickly leaves with thorns on them. Very weird. |
Mom says we can't eat them, but they sure look like they might be fun to whap!
|Our little purple eggplant!|
