And it appears that I'm growing a "Casper" variety of eggplant -- white/ivory eggplants that grow to 6-8" long. I didn't even know there were white eggplants. Lemon cukes, white eggplant, green striped tomatoes, orange carrot jalapenos, last year's red basil, and a chocolate flavored mint plant? These varieties are so easy to find in seed packs, and so often missing from stores. Next year...purple carrots (pics).
And for a while I had two fruits making a go for it, but squirrels ate the little one. In the end, one survived....
When I came home that afternoon, the sky was dark and it was about to storm. Here's the same flower, around 5:45 pm on Wed., probably gearing up for the storm. This particular flower dried up, dropped off, and disappeared.Phone pic, 7/26/10.
