Spring time, Gardening time!

I've been doing yard work lately. Today, I planted the eggplants that I bought at HomeDepot last weekend. This is the kind of eggplant I like, not the american size eggplant.
An attractive compact plant te produces pretty mauve flowers followed by clusters of 2-4 violet and white striped fruit. Eggplant Fairy Tale is less bitter than other eggplants and may be harvested when 10-15cm long. Eggplants are a very good source of dietary fibre, potassium and vitamins B1 and B6.

Hi! Dhemz...
I don't eat enough Eggplants, I really should...However, what you say here is so true about..."Eggplants are a very good source of dietary fibre, potassium and vitamins B1 and B6."
Thanks, for sharing!

Wow, ang galing naman. Nakatanim ang eggplants sa paso. Space saver talaga. Masarap ang eggplant lalo na sa kare kare o as ensalada. Masarap din itong gawing torta, hmmmm, my favorite. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
