Bounty from our garden

White corn, tomatoes and eggplant from our garden

Today we harvested our very first white corn and eggplant from our garden! We’ve never grown either before so it’s been fun to follow the progress of each!

The corn was delicious!!! We steamed and ate them within minutes of harvesting — it was a whole new level of freshness. So good! And we’ve got more corn still to harvest! The tomatoes were sweet and wonderful as well. Tomorrow we’ll experiment with our tiny eggplant. Wish us luck!

Today’s #OneGoodThing was the fresh bounty from our garden!

Day 274 of 366.

  1. How nice ! I also gros à San Marzano tomato plant and à purpal eggplant plant. This one has provided 12 fruits so far, and about 5 more to expect if we do not get any frost.

    They are delicious as eggplant lasagna (replacing the pasta), eggplant parmigiana, layers of eggplants, sliced lenghtwise, sliced sweet peppers, red onions, tomates, finishing with the sliced eggplants and topping with shredded Mozzarella, baked at 350 F for about 45 minutes, notamment forgetting to add your favorite seasonnings.

    My front door neighbour who comes from the Iranian part of Kurdistan cooked a marvelous dish with the eggplants I gave her with seasonnings brought from her country, accompanied with black lentil Rice and delivered it piping hot. When I returned the empty bowl, she was kind enough to give me some of those spices.

    Good luck and please let us know about the résults.

    Have fun,

    Lorraine.

    • Wow thank you so much for these wonderful suggestions Lorraine! Our eggplant crop this year consists of the three tiny eggplant in the photo so I’m not sure we could manage a lasagne. I’m thinking I might stir fry them, but I promise to report back on our results! Hopefully it will be #OneGoodThing! 😉
