img_1019What a surprise I had over the weekend when I was taking advantage of a relatively mild day to do some late fall yard clean-up – and found one last surprise in my container garden…

…this little eggplant that could.

Yep, this cute little eggplant is the last survivor of an amazing container garden season that had peppers and tomatoes yielding through November and a viable eggplant on the vine in December.

I can’t wait to see what next year’s garden has in store.

I can’t believe seeds I planted back on Easter weekend made it to Thanksgiving and almost Christmas.
