First eggplant...

21 March, 2012

This year the summer veg have missed their peak, and seem to be mostly fruiting now.

Last night I picked the first of the eggplant for dinner (along with the first corn of my last sowing and a baby Sugar Baby watermelon which was very conveniently one-person-dessert-sized).

The eggplant are a variety called Listada di Gandia, which I find bitter if they are picked when a bit older, but delicious when a bit on the young side. Their purple and white stripes are gorgeous, but disappear when cooked. That said they made some excellent eggplant chips!

The capsicums and peppers are just starting to set fruit, and hopefully these will mature before autumn completely takes over the temperature control.
