I have never grown eggplants from seed before, yeah I am lazy and usually buy them at the nursery. Earlier in the season I tried to germinate a punnet. No luck.
So I tried another punnet about 3 weeks ago and just left it in the propargator to see what would happen. And finally, finally two days ago a tiny hint of green peaked out of the soil. It appears 4 seeds have germinated, more may appear later!
But wow, oh wow I am so thrilled I finally managed to grow eggplants!
