Backyard Gardening #10: 2019 August Week 1

Outside Backyard Garden for Summer

Eggplants became too big in tight space now (stretching their shoulders 🙂 ). The middle plant below started to look stressed out by the side plants. So, it was time to move the middle one out of this area.

Now, this one has more space to grow horizontally and vertically. The leaves showed a little disease. So, I did a little bit of leaf cut.

Harvest

Made Japanese “tsukemono” out of eggplants and cucumbers.

This is organic tsukemono, so we can only keep them fresh for a couple of days.
