This is a bigger deal than you might think, as I have the total opposite of a green thumb. Despite this, I keep trying to grow vegetables — a triumph of hope over experience, I guess.  It paid off this time, as I managed (mostly by keeping far away from the plant!) to harvest a truly gorgeous eggplant.  I almost couldn’t bear to cook it, but I finally gave in, after painting this.  The picture’s ink, watercolor, and colored pencil.  As for the eggplant, it became Pad Ma Kua, a Thai stir fry dish.  Yum.

  1. Last night, I ordered “Spicy Eggplants” at our local Thai restaurant to honor your accomplishment. I also ordered a “Died Coke” since Diet wasn’t on the menu.
