Welcome to Homegrown, Homemade. I’m a cook who needs some help in the garden and Fine Gardening‘s Danielle Sherry is a gardener who needs some help in the kitchen. We’ve teamed up to show gardeners and cooks of all skill levels how get the most out of their crops from seed to plate. In these episodes, we’re growing and cooking with eggplant.
Episode Two: How to Care for Eggplant
Danielle and I head into the garden to give my somewhat disappointing eggplant crop a phosphorus boost. Danielle also shows me how to help my yield along with some hand-pollination. I get a basic botany lesson, Danielle grabs a Q-tip to aid in pollination, and we cue the Barry White music.
