The best thing about keeping a garden, other than being able to pick organically-grown vegetables or herbs or flowers at a moment’s notice, is the fact that you can grow varieties of plants otherwise rare or hard to find in the market.
Take these beautiful vegetables below, for example.
They’re not your run-of-the-mill eggplants, or tomatoes, or zucchini. They’re more interesting because of their shapes and colors and tastes.
At times I have a hard time harvesting them because they look so pretty growing on the plants. I think I garden mostly because I enjoy seeing things grow.
If the weather continues to be this warm, I’ll be getting a lot more of these vegetables. Time for ratatouille, maybe? Any other ideas?

Hi, Angie! Happy Friday to you!
I love gardening as well! Although, I mostly use my Tower Garden now, but there is something so rewarding in harvesting things that you’ve grown yourself. Anyway, thanks so much for hosting!
Happy Friday to you, too, Tai! Tower Garden sounds so much fun!

Angie, can you send me some of the your veggies? Haha!
Thank you and Diann for hosting. Sorry, I am late – busy days. I hope you are having a fab week!
I would if I could, Jhuls. I’m a sharer not a hoarder ? Some of my coworkers enjoy my garden’s bounty ?

That’s a beautiful selection of vegetables. I love growing in the garden and also managed a couple of aubergines (eggplant) this year.
Thank you so much for featuring my Tortilla Stack.
Have a great week. xxx
I admit I don’t always manage to grow great eggplants but this year seems different. I find they actually love water! It’s been so wet this year.
The tortilla stack is ingenious!
