Outdoor Eggplant 2017

I bought a "white" eggplant transplant this year. Don't know what variety it is, but I've grown the local nursery's "white eggplant" before and liked it slightly more than gretel.

It's funny - green lacewings adore eggplant. Worth growing just to keep a crop of lacewings on hand to control the aphids.

Harvested a couple eggplant

Harvested a couple eggplant this week - my first for the year. They were excellent. Sauteed in garlic and olive oil and put on pizza. :)

Maybe the July heat, maybe the pepper fertilizer, but this plant has definitely gotten happier.

The eggplant had a lovely

The eggplant had a lovely flower already, but that one failed. Further buds under development. Happy little plant, finally getting warm enough.

For better or worse, I fed it some of my new pepper fertilizer. < shrug > I have no idea whether eggplant are more pepper-like or more tomato-like in their nutritional needs. (Other than not needing as much as the other two.)
