Eggplant into the Field
As I suspected, the eggplant got moved outdoors along with the remainder of the chiles. This wave of transplanting is now completed and a relatively empty greenhouse is full of space to be filled with seedings and seedlings of future cabbages, broccolis, lettuces, etc... A huge amount of planting will continue outdoors in the next couple of weeks too including cucumbers, melons, winter squash, beans, etc... When you grow a little of everything and do it in Sonoma County, a grower's paradise, there really is no end to what can be done, hence another example that the farmer's job never ends.
A variety of eggplant await their turn to be let loose to the wild conditions of the farm fields.
