Lovely Eggplant

20120623-133704.jpg Eggplants are growing well this year, in my garden and at Breezy Willow (my CSA). Over the past few years I've learned a few tricks for growing eggplants in containers (heavy feeders & drinkers!) but this year I'm trying some in the ground as well. I'm growing two varieties this year, little fingers & listada de gandia. So far only the listada is producing fruit, but the little fingers just started to set flowers.

It's been a wonky start to the gardening season so far. But lucky me, no stinkbugs, yet! Here are a few of my favorite eggplant recipes:
