Will your children eat eggplant? Will you? Eggplant can become quite flavorful if marinated.



Work in the garden carries on towards a goal. Wish that I knew how that goal would evolve, but I am moving forward. I have been pruning, fertilizing, and transplanting. All in the hopes of being able to relax in the garden. I have been enjoying myself in that space, but maybe I need a bit more patience. The vegetables are coming along. The harvest looks quite good, if only I could stop my youngest from harvesting before the vegetables are ready. Baby eggplants appear to be on her agenda.

Container planting can be great for the home or porch, but they do need a bit more care.

I wanted to share this photo. What a container for those plants. I wonder if they take care of it, or if it has gone wild. My father took this picture while he and my mother were visiting relatives in Uruguay. I do not think my neighbors would care for this, if I did it in my yard. I am more into containers this year. Container gardening can be a wonderful way to enhance a space, but they do need your attention more often than a garden bed.
