The first tomatoes and eggplants of the year!!!! Cool!!!!

The eggplants are a Japanese brand that stay long and thin.

I, of course, waited to pick them till they were a bit big.... but when smaller they are very, very, very sweet! Unlike the regular eggplants that tend to be bitter and hard skinned. The skin stays soft on these and they fry up perfectly!!!!!

The tomatoes, well, I have no idea what brand they are! The name was missing, so I just planted them. They look pretty good though. And all around them you may think are weeds, but it's not ...... it's pineapple and lemon basil. What better companion plant to tomatoes?
