Re: Very Odd Eggplant Plant leaves

It is odd. The speckling does look like damage from some kind of small mite.
Nice lady bug larvae!

Re: Baked Eggplant Casserole A La Morrison's Cafeteria.

Well, I’ve never made anything like the casserole so we’ll see how that goes, lol.
Beans sound really good, too if I can figure out how to limit the salt a bit.
Thanks @GoDawgs!

Re: Free shipping from A M Leonard this weekend

I have my acknowledgment, but no shipping notice yet.
Has anyone else who ordered from them recently received a shipping notification?

Re: Dr. Wyche's Yellow

Well, I had the best intentions but my plant didn’t make it to flowering before dying of something or other.
I’ll try again next year and am hoping others had better experiences.

Re: The Dawg Patch

It’s an absolute steam bath here now. Working in the garden forces slow motion and frequent breaks.
Will you start more beans or is that it for you?

Re: Winter Tomatoes in Fl. (Plus veggies)

Yikes @Barb_FL, you have a tough decision.

If it’s me I’d stay home and hope for next year.
It comes down to the multiple risk vectors with having to fly. If you could drive that might be different but it’s quite a haul.

Re: Winter Tomatoes in Fl. (Plus veggies)

@Ginger2778, I’m wondering the same thing - best raised bed material for Florida. If you find any vids/pics you like let me know. I’d like to do something next year potentially.

Re: North Florida Gardening

Thank you Marsha @Ginger2778. Most of them went to my Indian coworkers last evening as I had way more than I could use.
Yes, Lemon Drop is a monster! My one plant is from last year; I cut it back in February and off it went.
