Garden looks good. Ours burned up. 40 days without rain and 100+ temps will do that to you. Have you ever tried the oriental egg plant? To me, it is better than the "standard" egg plant in that the skin on the oriental type is tender and can be eaten while the skin on the "regular" one has to be peeled off like a slice of bologna. That is my experience. The oriental ones make better around here also. They will have 6 or so on at the same time. I got some oriental by mistake at the feed store. Didn't pay any attention when I set them out. When they started making, I wondered what in the world they were. I have planted them ever since. Just my thoughts.
