Oh my GREEN *and purple* goodness!


Don’t you just love it when you find a surprise? ME TOO.


After I shared my love for all things EGGPLANT on Purple Monday, I wondered just WHEN WAS MY EGGPLANT-PLANT GOING TO GIVE ME SOME EGGPLANTS?

Yes, I shouted this in the yard…and yes, my neighbors think I am mucho loco. And by ‘neighbors’ I mean the dogs who were following me around.

Well, lo and behold, I found some purple goodness growing!IMG_4031

And of course, I also found a bajillion weeds in the garden. Oy vay.

And now, file this under the MOST EXCITING NEWS EVER Category!

Seriously,  I am sure you will all be so excited to read this news flash that you will go out today and adopt 4 children from third world countries, donate an organ and recycle every scrap of paper for the rest of your life.

Remember when I was complaining about my honeybell orange tree never producing any oranges?  (after 8+ years!)  Apparently, our tree reads my blog and got off it’s lazy butt and made an effort!  Forizzle.

IMG_4039When I saw this I gasped SO loud that the neighbors all stopped what they were doing and ran to me to see if I was ok.

And by neighbors, I mean the dogs who were following me around the yard.   Mr and Mrs. Lazy McLaz-a-lots.


So, did you start your adoption applications yet?

  1. Something is wrong!! I can't see your blog text, all I can see is a 'thing' from photobucket, saying 'you've exceeded your bandwith' or something like that, and the photos. 😦 Maybe it's just my computer? I had to click on the comments so I could read the text.


  2. I'm glad things are coming up roses …err, eggplant and oranges… Maybe those boxers of your have become pollinators?I had a heck of a time reading through the photobucket background…

  4. I'm so excited for you – how are you ever going to bring yourself to eat those beautiful green and purple babies? Please share some eggplant recipes – I LOVE it, but haven't succeeded in converting Gregg yet.I met a 3-year old boxer girl yesterday. She made me think of you & your boxers – sweet, energetic, affectionate and happy.


  5. Oh, that's MUCH better!! I can see it now. :)That orange looks adorable. What a pwetty widdle baby!My dad's been harvesting lots of eggplant this year, but since I HATE eggplant, I could care less. I'm glad you like 'em. Don't save any for me, though. 😉


  6. YaY for Oranges and Eggplant. Although I am not a fan of eggplant, but since you are I will be excited for you 🙂 And I just love your boxers…. as far as my adoption apps, well…. 3 dogs is quite enough 🙂
