What a gorgeous eggplant,

What a gorgeous eggplant, Corinne! yes And thank you for the kind words on my book. smiley

One thing you have to try with a little eggplant:  Put just a few fork holes in it and microwave it for 45 seconds or so. It squeals - LOL! laugh Yeah, it's not the tastiest way to eat them, but it's funny.

My favorite thing to do with a small eggplant harvest is peel them (I don't like the skins), slice them, and sauteé them in butter with some smoked paprika. Eggplant are kinda like mushrooms in that they soak up whatever you sauteé them with. Butter and garlic is great before adding them to pizza. I love eggplant on pizza, and it doesn't greatly matter how much or little eggplant you have for that.

Yum!!! Thanks for sharing

Yum!!! Thanks for sharing that, Corinne! yes

FWIW, I've been able to get more than one cuke developing at a time indoors with Socrates, Cool Breeze, and Korean Grace White cukes. The latter needs pollinating, though - maybe. It produces male and female flowers, at any rate.

I'm psyched - my first-to-fruit cuke outdoors this year looks like my new Summer Dance Japanese cukes. Soon...

It seems most of my posting

It seems most of my posting is about my indoor soil mix projects. I use Ginger's Indoor Salad Book quite often and find it quite informative and helpful.

Here is a photo or 2 of an indoor Fairy Tale Eggplant starting to flower and fruit. If I were to grow one of these to maturity in an AG machine it would have to be a Tall machine and only 1 pod since I find it to be quite large.

Now to find a recipe for a practical way to prepare the fairy Tales.

As I type I am devouring the last of the Tasty Jade project. I am glad I found this seed reference on the forum and will be planting it again. The only disappointing thing about this ijndoor project was the fact that it produced one cuke at a time. However, the cukes were all tender, crisp and oh so juicy and...self pollinating!

It's wonderful how unseedy

It's wonderful how unseedy the Jades are, though. What indoor tomato variety is that?

I really like the juicyness

I really like the juicyness and crispness of the Jades.

I really do not care for the overabundance of seeds in the toms, though.

Ooh, pretty-pretty, Corinne! How'd they taste? smiley

I mixed some home-grown green onion and carmen pepper with a block of cream cheese for lunch, on top of an English muffin. Yummm.
