One thing that has not been very successful is growing eggplants. Every year I try couple of different varieties and while they looking nice and green they just don't have that many actual eggplants on them. The most success I had was Ichiban - long and purple asian variety. White did only 2 small eggs and striped had only 1. Maybe it's because this area never really gets warm enough for them to grow well. At any rate I will plant some again this year and will do it in the new garden area - it gets more sun than original garden and I will plant it with alot of composted manure so it should have plenty of nutrients. I want to go with bi color, ichiban and maybe Black Beauty. Let's see how it grows this time around.
