How Many Eggplant Photos Can I Post???

It is so hot and humid here that I can’t breathe . . .

A little asthma coupled with cornfields on all sides of my home keeps me

captive until we get some weather relief . . .

Michael and I  picked this cute little eggplant trio and some cherry tomatoes . . .

He spent the afternoon finishing the mowing that I started earlier this week.

Aren’t they cute???

Their diminutive size reminds me of my Mom . . .

not that she was diminutive . . .

she just had to pick things before they were really ready to pick!!!

We always had those teeny tiny potatoes that you see now

being advertised as organic baby potatoes . . .

Not . . . she just couldn’t wait for them to get any larger!!!

Good memories ! ! !

That nice smokey effect on these photos . . .

My camera lens was fogged because it was so hot and humid . . .

I made these photos at 8 p.m. on my porch . . .

I never managed to get it completely unfogged.

  1. Oh, my goodness, I know ALL ABOUT the fogged camera lens! I've struggled with it myself lately. Your "classy veggie" pics are great! I especially love the cherry tomatoes in the sugar shuttle. That's inspired!

  2. Hi Becky, What a cute blog post. I've seen alot of different blogs but have never seen one predominantly about eggplant... How funny!!!!

    I needed a laugh--so thanks alot. I lost one of my best friends on Thursday. She died after fighting cancer for several years. We are going to the funeral tomorrow. I've been very sad all weekend...

    So--thanks for the smile.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  3. The humidity makes for a romantical sort of photo that I very much like. I never knew that eggplants could look so good. The story of your mom and early harvest is so cute!

  28. The pictures are delightful...but I'd be throwing those tomatoes and eggplants into a casserole with some garlic and onions and a few other vegetables and making ratatouille.
