|"Eight Ball" Zucchini|
Eight Ball Zucchini These round-shaped zucchini are firm and have excellent flavor. I have had great success in cooking them on the grill, marinated in Italian dressing; frying them after dusting with flour (I used Mochiko sweet rice flour) and then dipping in an egg batter; and also grated for zucchini bread. Next I'll be putting up some zucchini relish. Must say that I still have a whole refrigerator drawer full of zucchini; they just keep coming.
Little Prince Eggplant It's mid-August and the fruit of this eggplant variety are now setting. Pictured are two plants in a container purchased from Home Depot, which measures about 24" x 30" and about 14" deep. There are lots of blossoms and I'm thinking there will be a bountiful harvest to come. These eggplant are supposed to reach about 3" in size; so far, mine are about 1-1/2". I'm leaving them hanging to see how large they will grow before becoming too seedy
