…Remember what I said last week about our eggplant not doing all that well?
We’ve got an eggplant! Though it looks more like a belly button at this point, it’s progress that we’re very excited about. The eggplant seems to attract a variety of little critters, as you can see in the photo. We’ve seen red ants crawling on the leaves, and some little green bugs congregating in the crevices which I’m 90% sure are aphids which we’re doing to have to do something about. So far they aren’t eating anything, but I’m sure they’re planning on it.
We’re away at Finn’s parents’ house in Belchertown for the holiday weekend, so when we get back we hope to have something to show off that looks a little more edible.
