It's Beginning to feel like Fall -- Garden Update

Temperatures dropping. Leaves beginning to fall. It's the end of another hot summer. With the end of 12+ hours of sun comes a few minor changes in the garden.
Bouquet of peppers
So many peppers
First off, the cucumber plants have outlived their short lives and have been removed. I got about 6 or so good cucumbers from the two plants. Next year I'll try hand pollinating to ensure larger yields.

Summertime Favorites: Fried Eggplant

Enjoyable even without Parmesan
With summer here, there are plenty of delicious vegetables available, whether it be from a farmer's market or your own garden. Whenever I get my hands on some good zucchini or eggplant, one of my favorite ways to prepare them is pan frying. It might not be the healthiest way to enjoy them, but it certainly is one of the most delicious ways to eat your vegetables.
