Speaking of tomatoes: I harvested the first three Japanese Trifele today. They weren't really purple, but a dark red color. They tasted okay, not anything to write home about. Not a strong tomato taste, which disappointed me. They don't smell tomato-y either. Unfortunately, this is the plant with the most fruit.

Today was a great harvest day. Lemon cucumbers, tomatoes, and blackberries.

I picked several eggplant last night. No, we haven't eaten them yet. The eggplant is still growing, blooming, and setting lots of fruit. I still think it is the prettiest plant in the garden.
