First eggplant harvest from two plants.  I pushed my luck by leaving some of them on the plant so long after being out of town.  Lucky for me it rained at home the whole time I was gone.
Listada de Gandia on left (larger one is about baseball size), Pandora on right (about Coke can length but a little narrower).  Just chopped some of them into little bits with skin left on, now roasting them to go in a pasta sauce with yellow bell pepper and homegrown tomatoes, oregano, and basil.

Go, little eggplant, go!

Go, little eggplant, go!

The first eggplant blossom has opened.

Went to a farmers market today and found this grumpy muppet eggplant.
