Harvest: Eggplant and Tomatoes (two of them)

We've been monitoring the progress of this one for a month now (see June 24, July 9) The first eggplant is in and there are more on the plant.
We actually harvested two eggplants but it turns out an army of tiny white bugs has been using the Antigua as a cafeteria. It's our fault. We need to make sure none of the produce touches the ground because the pests will get to it. Combining clipping the lowest branches and using stakes/trellises will help out.
The farm also brought in two tomatoes the size of golf balls.
