Gardening started late and I was doubtful whether I was going to get anything worth my efforts this year. This week I got some payback, not much, but enough to keep me going. I was thrilled to pick a few vegetables. Four little eggplants. That's kind of lame.
Two mutant bell peppers, one mini zucchini and some basil.
Not to be discouraged, I attempted a ratatouille. I had to supplement it with some store bought squash. It was so much better than last year's attempt (I let the eggplants grow too big and they tasted like wood). I also topped it with a load of shredded mozzarella- delish.
I also picked my first tomato, a Cherokee purple, I believe. Not very purple, not very attractive as far as looks go.
