Our city family is taking advantage of all the summer sun by growing vegetables on pots! Yes, pots. We have a cemented backyard so pots are our only option. We are growing everything from Japanese Ichiban Eggplants to cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, mint, and even some spring lettuces. Today’s small harvest was Japanese Eggplants. Can’t wait to try my mother-in-law’s recipe of Chinese Stuffed Eggplants , or bring some over to my dad’s for his special Filipino dish called Pinakbet or maybe some Filipino Eggplant Omelette! Yum!
Besides enjoying the vegetables now, my kids and I had fun planting from the beginning. With some internet searching, pots, soil, and bought store vegetable seeds, we blindly went through the process and just hoped for the best. And wow! We can’t wait to do it all over again.
