Why, yes, that photo is totally posed. I’m easily amused, by such small things as laying purple eggplants next to pink flowering tobacco, so the nightshades can congratulate each other on escaping the evil Late Blight of ’09. And (hastily crossing fingers) the tomatoes are still doing well, thank goodness.
Those two were big enough to be grilled, and the little winter squash I harvested was ripe enough to also be grilled, making nice little side dishes to what’s either the last grilling of the summer or the first of fall. I have admit the eggplant came out tasting a bit blah. Here’s hoping for enough mild weather to ripen the next three.
And look, in the background: more tomatoes, too!
