Not wanting to remain seedless in September, I went and bought a whole lot of seeds. Among them was a round variety of eggplant named Round Beauty. Why September, one might ask. Well, the flower shops and nurseries start their not-so-aggressive selling then. As a gardener one is always tempted to buy. Never mind even if you lack the space for all the round beauties, a gardener always finds a way!
And in December, I’m rewarded by this bloom. The first from the batch of plants in pots and cement bags. I noticed it the other day and rushed inside the house to get the camera. And an added bonus was this pretty ladybug. Among all the vegetable blooms, the eggplant’s must be one of the prettiest!
