eggplants galore

more galore - this time eggplants instead of earrings.

just to be a bit difficult i planted 2 eggplant plants in a flower bed next to the side door.

one plant has two lovely slender purple eggplants on it.

the second plant is a freaky eggplant powerhouse and currently has 46 small green & white striped eggplants developing on it- and more blossoms coming on.

i have no idea what variety this is, or how large the mature eggplants will be.

in any case, it has been a very entertaining plant so far.
