I planted the following eggplant: New York Improved, Ripples, Snow Globe, Twilight Lightning, Skinny Twilight, Prosperosa, Rosa Bianca, Midnight Lightning, Listada di Gandia, Italian Pink Bicolor, Green Giant and Antigua...as well as an off-type Snow Globe that had a purplish stem (I love eggplant mysteries). Some of these are annual favorites - we really like the wider, more globe shaped eggplant for peeling, slicing, dipping in egg then breadcrumbs, and baking - we froze bags of eggplant prepared this way last fall. Green Giant seems to be off of seed catalog lists, so seed saving will be critical. Quite a few of these are my own varieties, selected and stabilized from hybrids.
I also planted these sweet peppers: Amethyst, Chervena, Chocolate Bell, Golden Marconi, Fire Opal, Cubanelle, Kalman Hungarian, Oda, Orange Bell, Red Corno di Toro, Yellow Corno di Toro, Red Belgium, Royal Purple, Candy Corn, Garden Sunshine, White Gold, World Beater, and Marconi.
....and the following hot peppers: Eclipse, Bulgarian Carrot, Fish, Pinata, Padron, Vacquero, Takanatsume, Sunrise and Sunset. I will be planting other hot peppers into smaller (2 gallon) grow bags.
And so here is what things in my driveway looked like at the end of Monday:
