Just a week ago, the garden’s Nadia eggplants were beginning to look like a lost cause. They were flat to the ground, at best just 1/3 the height of the Mangans. Plus they had no blooms, where the Mangans had bloomed early.
Happily, however, the Nadias are now catching up. Several display gorgeous blooms of their own. And they’ve shot up, doubling their height. They’re not the height of the Mangans, to be sure, but they are now at least half way.
Let’s not count the Nadias out yet.
