Today's Harvest, July 25

Home grown vegetables, La Ceiba, Honduras
Here is what I harvested today from my terribly neglected garden. Delicata squash, zucchini, Ping Tung eggplant, Goldbar summer squash, 8-Ball zucchini (excellent for stuffing), cucumber, Malabar spinach, corn, and lima beans. We put most of it in a fritatta for dinner tonight. Yummy!

Pingtung long eggplant, La Ceiba, HondurasThis is the Ping Tung Japanese Eggplant. It seems to be very prolific. The color is a beautiful lavendar which doesn't show well in this picture − too much sun − but in real life, it is almost too pretty to eat!
