I know many of you are still busy in playing FarmVille game on facebook. As mentioned before on this blog, here I am sharing the brinjals (Egg Plant) from my GardenVille! You can read about that mention in one of my previous posts here. Yes, home grown brinjals from my tiny rooftop garden. All these pictures have been clicked over a period of time as the plants grew bigger. Most of these were planted in soil filled bags instead of conventional pots. It was again a kind of experiment to see how good the plants grow in such bags. I am pretty happy with the outcome! The size of brinjals from the plants in bags were considerably bigger than the ones in pots. You can witness that it yourself in the images below. Click on images to see them bigger.
Now, you must be wondering about one different colored brinjal. Of all the greenish white brinjals, why only one is yellow in color? Well, I left it to ripen so that we can dry the same later on to extract seeds. With these seeds, we can start a fresh season once again! If you were wondering about the ‘BT Brinjal’ controversial stuff, here is some clue for you. Seeds can’t be extracted from plants like what I have mentioned here with those genetically modified BT Brijals. Everytime you need Brinjal plants, you got to buy them from a Bio-Tech seeds company. That is one of the major ire for farmers to oppose BT Brinjals.
Also to provide a quick update on the Chrysanthemum flowers, they have been blossoming all this while for over 2 months! Now the time has come to remove them and change to some other flowering plants. Brinjal plants may yield for another month or so. Stay tuned to know what I am going to grow next 🙂
