Vittoria In The Lead
This morning, I discovered a third eggplant on the Vittoria hybrid. Not the small one at the top, but the large one on the bottom left-hand side. It had been growing under the leaf mulch! The Ping Tung has two eggplants, while the Black Beauty and Rose Bianca varieties have none. The latter two seem to have been zapped by mites or some kind of leaf fungus.
I also discovered two Paul Robeson tomatoes at the bottom of this plant, behind a mass of leaves (which I removed). Not only were they ripe, they were over-ripe. They squished to mush when I tried to pull them off. Euw.
