Eggplants are putting out lots of fruits, but something is eating the fruits. I found a couple of fairy tales nibbled on and there was one round variety eaten off with just the skin hanging. The eggplant was about six inches off the ground and is surrounded by wire fencing, so something has to get through it and then be big enough to eat a 3 inch size eggplant. If anyone has some ideas on this let me know. I thought of moles/voles, but they couldn't eat such a big eggplant(could they?), the nibbling is done by them. Raccoon? I've never seen them around here. What else could it be? Bunnies couldn't get in through the fence.
This Harvest Monday belongs to red onions. I pulled out all of my onions from the ground. I had several hundred sets and also plants started from seeds. They weren't as large as I'd hoped. Most were medium sized. Altogether, they weighed 23lbs. The ones from seeds are quite small and was wondering if I could plant them as sets for next year.....
Zucchini(one plant is always growing yellow zucchini! Is that weird?), cucumbers, 1 tomato, 1 beans and 2 sweet banana peppers.
Green beans, 2 red cayenne peppers, zucchini, 2 eggplants, cucumbers
More red onions cleaned
Yellow zucchini, green zucchini, first red bell, one plum(fell off the tree)
