Garden on the Deck: Fruitful Fruiting

A while back (here) I bitched about the death and destruction in this summer's garden, caused by squirrels and my mistakes. But I have had wonderful successes in the garden, as well. Triumphs include an abundance of basil, chives and mint, and brand new experiments, like lettuce (SO EASY...I'll do again and again), lemon cukes (below), and flowers, which happen to be useful pest deterrents and they're pretty.
I've harvested one beet (woohoo), carrots are still growing, and peppers are on their way. Today, I had a big surprise...
Holy Shit. It's an EGGPLANT!!! 7/21/10.
