YAY!
My little patio pot garden is not only giving us tomatoes, but now we can see cucumbers and bell peppers coming soon!

We put in new blackberry vines this year, on a trellis. They start producing the second year, so next year. Off some of the old shoots from last year that had been trimmed back, we have a few black berries. They are amazing tasting, rich, raspberryish flavor.

Reminds me of an old joke take off of Mother Goose...

Mary, Mary, quite contrary

How does your garden grow?

With silver bells and cockleshells

And one *&)$#@^ onion.

I picked an eggplant yesterday. I wasn't sure if it was ready but it was resting on the ground and...

So I cut off a couple of slices and threw them on the grill last night. They were rather bitter - not inedible but not delightful.

I thought I had read somewhere that 'now-a-days' eggplants have had the 'bitterness' bred out of them. That they only become bitter with age. I realize Japanese eggplants, with their delicate skins are not bitter, but that is not what I planted. I planted the globe type.

Was it because it was not ripe? It seemed to cook up properly and inside seemed ripe, you could see the seeds.

I haven't had a garden for several years, but I don't remember my eggplants ever being bitter before.
