I’m sad to report that this eggplant was the one and only that we were able to harvest this summer. The squirrels got the best of the other eggplant and although we enjoyed this little beauty a few weeks ago, we have yet to see another sprout from the lovely purple flowers on the plant in the garden. Alas! And, yes. Lily is the beast in this post – she went through an angst-ridden teenager phase this summer and was prone to destroying things in the mudroom during the day while we were at work. But that face, I can’t be mad…even the camera is focused on her and not the incredible aubergine sitting in my hand!
