    Hi – I thought I’d let you know that I had trouble growing eggplant, but then it isn’t my favorite so that could be why. I don’t think my cantaloupe did well either (watermelon didn’t get much bigger than a baseball, I do remember that.

    Also, you should send this to Fedco Seeds and let them know you did some free advertising for them (that is, if you did) as they may be willing to give you a discount or else pay for advertising on your website. Something to think about as it will generate additional income or else cut down on expenses.

    We’re looking forward to another banner year!!!!

  2. James,
    Thanks for the comment! Eggplant will certainly be a trial. We did try cantaloupe last year, but didn’t get marketable fruit. We hope to improve on that this year in a different location and with more fertility. Good suggestion on Fedco!

    Looking forward to this spring. See you then.
