About this blog

With the generous help of my grandma, I am spending this spring and summer learning how to garden
by plunging in headfirst. This blog is a narrative of my adventures.

Eggplants At Last

As usual, I came home from Grandma's with more peppers than I need, and a handful of cherry tomatoes, although for some reason the big tomatoes are ripening slowly. I also found two ripe eggplants. And I remembered there were some carrots that were too little a few weeks ago, so I dug them up today.

I know you guys want pictures but I never have my camera with me and pictures just don't look as good on my phone. So I put a little still life together of some of the veggies I picked today.


  1. Hi Madeline,

    Real good pictures and I see a nice gardening effort here. Is that a yellow pear tomato? The Heirloom variety?


    1. Hi Ramesh,

      Thank you! And the garden is still going strong, I just haven't posted in a while because it's kind of the same old stuff happening. I don't want to bore people!
      Yes, that is a yellow pear tomato, but I don't believe it's the heirloom variety. They are delicious and prolific, though!
