these tiny little gems were purchased as a last minute space filler from paulino gardens late season in 2017 as a 6 cell pack. I don’t really eat much eggplant since all my experiences with it were with black globe type eggplant that was always just kind of mushy or in baba ganoush. These fairytale eggplant were just lovely cut in half, brushed with olive oil or a light dressing and charred. I ended up having SO many that we couldn’t eat them all and they were given to the local food pantry. I experimented with roasting them but trust me when I say it’s not worth it—they are so tiny that you end up with a teaspoon of mush that unless you roast 20 you wont have enough for a proper dish. They are thin-skinned so they don’t require any peeling.

I purchased some certified seed potatoes from paulino gardens for 2017. I had never grown potatoes and I know they like darkness (solanine) and cool weather. I split and chitted the potatoes and buried them in black fabric grow bags in my yard. They just went on and on and on! I frequently forgot to deep water the bags but the foliage remained strong and green all through November. I harvested them in late November hoping to have a good harvest for thanksgiving. Alas, they produced just about 6 pounds of potatoes. Probably due to my sporadic watering, and someone had dug into one of the potato bags to pull some potatoes out. The nerve. All in all, I can’t wait to grow more potatoes next year because we eat a ton of potatoes. There were no pests or diseases to see and I did absolutely nothing for pest prevention other than simply caring for my garden. In 2018 I’d love to grow some bigger ones. The potatoes I did harvest are still covered in a light dusting of dirt and stored on a high shelf in my cold garage and washed as needed to eat. They’re buttery and perfect.

the two tools that I use every day, take with me no matter what, and are basically my hands during the garden season are hand-forged Swedish boron steel and will never bend. they have a lifetime warranty and are just the best! say goodbye to your crappy bendy hand tools and invest in the essential 2 that you will use for the rest of your life.
