I’ve been so proud of my garden this fall. Our collards, mustard, Brussel sprouts and broccoli are all doing or did fine. We got more tomatoes than usual; they’re small but delicious. So I really shouldn’t complain but my eggplants are a different story.
The plants themselves look good and they bloom but absolutely no fruit! I tried pollinating them with a q-tip and small brush but that didn’t do one ounce of good. What could I be doing wrong? My sister said maybe I had two male plants but what do I know. How would one tell?
Anyway… I told them if they didn’t do something soon I am going to pull them up, feed them to the chickens and try again in the spring.
I’m really looking forward to a spring garden and I’ve been busy trying to decide what to plant. I know I need to rotate and not plant the same thing in the same place. I love looking through the seed catalogs. Billy made me two raised beds last spring and I think we will add a couple more this year. I need to start getting them ready so I can plant in February.
Thank you for stopping by and until next time “Happy Gardening.” God bless.
