From Green Brinjals To Yellow Brinjals (Eggplants Or Aubergine).

Recently, we have been having rainy mornings and my plants were well watered by the rain. Due to my busyness with other things, I have not been spending much time tending to my plants. I have totally lost track of my veggie plants and when I walked into my garden, I noticed that most of my green brinjals have over matured or have turned yellow.

I have 3 brinjal plants in my garden and I grow them in pots. Here, they are known as brinjal but in some countries they are known as eggplant or aubergine. My plants are now 9 months old. I have posted about them previously and if you are interested, you can click here to read the post.
The plants have been very fruitful and I have harvested many brinjals from them. When they are over matured, the seeds will be very hard and cannot be eaten but they are a pretty sight hanging on the plants.
These are too old to be eaten and can only use the seeds to grow new plants.
Some of them were big.
These two were starting to turn yellow.
One or two have even cracked.
My friends who are keen gardeners also have these in their garden.
I didn't want to grow any more brinjal plants so I finally threw these away. It was only much later, a friend told me that she is interested to grow them. She will have to wait for the seedlings in my garden to grow bigger before I can pass them to her.
One of my recent harvest. I usually cut them in slices, marinated with salt, pepper or curry powder and pan fry them.
One recent harvest with some of the french beans from my garden. Since I seldom cooked nowadays, I passed all the brinjals to a friend.

I am slowing replacing the non-edible plants with more edible plants.

It is getting overcrowded with edible plants.
Hopefully I will find some time to weed and tidy up my garden.
There is a lot of work to be done in a garden.

  13. Wow those brinjals have done well for you. I gave up growing them as I was only getting a couple of fruit per plant and autumn killed them off all too quickly. Take care, Diane

  14. Your garden is wonderful! The brinjals are lovely to look at and the French beans remind me of the ones my father used to grow and as always in childhood memories, his beans tasted like no other :) I am sure yours must be equally delicious.

    1. Hi Mun, these green ones do not turn purple. If wait too long, they will turn gold and will be too old for eating. Have a fun day!
