Up on the rooftop, some things are going well, like this eggplant. I've never grown them before so it's a special treat to see the pretty pale purple flowers turn into thumbnail-sized, dark purple eggplants. I see parmesan in the next week or two, perhaps including some plump roma tomatoes that are thick on the vine and just beginning to ripen. Unhappily though, the pesky squirrel continues to dig between the flowers in one of the boxes and the hoped-for California poppies from seed, were a bust. Busy or lazy, I'm not sure which is most true, I haven't reseeded the arugula or micro greens but next week I'll do that for sure. It's a good, self-sufficient feeling I get even from my teeny little garden.
