Eggplants are plentiful - this is my first time growing them and I have just a single plant. These italian ones couldn't be more beautiful and tasty. I have been making/eating eggplant rollatini each week and have to learn a few different ways of cooking eggplant.
I have two cucumber plants and they are producing about 10 cucumbers a week. The cherry tomatoes are plentiful but I haven't had a single yellow grape tomato at all from my plant and my yellow pear tomatoes are just coming in which is later than in previous years. So we will keep everyone updated.

Just wanted to show off the Solar Fire tomatoes (left and right) and the 4.5 inch Mortgage Lifter in the center.
The past years during the drought my large tomatoes didn't show up until end of July and my garden was overrun with the grape and cherry tomatoes. This year I'm getting the large ones early and just a few cherry tomatoes. Surprised that I haven't had a single yellow grape or yellow pear yet...
My Yellow Taxi tomatoes are finished as well (you can see the last few on the sill).
