Urban farming


First eggplant of the season!

Okay, okay, “farming” is a bit of an overstatement. But at least we have some vegetables forming now. It’s been such a crazy summer I wasn’t sure what we were going to end up with. First heat and drought, then a long stretch of cool drenching rain. And now we’re back to scorching heat again.

I took this picture a couple of days ago, and this morning when I checked it again the fruit had already grown to about twice this size. So now  if we can keep the critters at bay. (And yes,t he weeds, too. Please don’t look too closely at this picture! Yes that is grass. yes that is oxalis.)



  1. Lovely! You obviously weed your garden well, there are hardly any weeds! Here’s hoping the critter keep their distance.
