When it comes to eggplants, my favorite is the Black Beauty.  It is easy to grow and produces dark skinned, dark purple, glossy beauties.  It thrives in full sun and rich soil. It's a warm weather plant that requires water on a regular basis nd balanced garden fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season.

I prefer to buy the Black Beauty in plants to transfer into the garden.  This time, I bought six (6) plants in a container.  It could have been eight plants.  When in the world are two people going to eat those beauties after harvesting?

Eggplant Parmesan made with browned ground meat, tomatoes and sauce, onions, and cheese is delicious.

Eggplants may be breaded and fried.  What else can you do with an eggplant?

These pictures reminded me of what we did with our surplus of the eggplants that came in faster than we could eat 'em.  My husband took them over to the Senior Citizen's Activity Center.

The eggplants disappeared and we were told how much the fruit was appreciated and we were told that the recipients made Eggplant Parmesan.

It is rewarding to eat the healthful vegetables from your own garden.  It also gives me great pleasure that I am able to share my harvest.
