Roses and eggplants!

My eggplants are going to town right now.  I have 3 on each plant in various stages.  I love eggplant plants in the south, because you can keep them going for approx. 3 years!  These are in the first year, but should continue to fruit solidly over the 3 years!  Amazing!  This is my first time growing these large white egg shaped type.  Sure hope they taste great!  I have szechuan ideas for them!!!

1rst plant:

                                                                          2nd plant:
                                      One on the other side of the bucket from the other 2.
My roses are having a bloom fest.  

YELLOW:
                                                            LAVENDER COLORED:
                                                                              CORAL:

The days here are cooling off slightly over the next few days.  I should be out mowing my back yard, but I'm just not in the mood!  Hehe.  Doozey is laying here, looking all adorable!  She loves her new stuffingless toy, Mr. Ducky.  It crinkles...her favorite!!!
Have a great Thursday, Friday and upcoming weekend!
XOXO- Julie

You are growing eggplants?? That is the coolest thing EVER. Will they turn purple? I always wondered why they are called eggplants but I think I know, now.

Pretty roses and Hiiii Doozey! <3

This was the very first year we grew eggplant and I'm so happy to say it was a success! Lots of eggplant - beautiful purple and delicious! I love seeing what you've been up to! Your garden looks great! Our days are cooling too - oh my, Doozey is ADORABLE!

Hi Julie,
Your roses have come on wonderfully and give a lovely display of colour. Do they have any perfume.

You will have fun making up recipes for your egg plants. I love the flavour of them. They are good in greek dishes.

Doozey looks very cute

Those look like the original egg plants since they are white. I was not introduced to egg plant until I was older. I wouldn't know what to do with one. It is a pretty fruit.

Lucky you to be able to grow such great looking eggplants. The gardening year has ended for me and I finally dug up the last of the carrotsthis weekend. The garden has been put to rest for another year.
