A harvest year for eggplant. Gigantism is off the charts

I’m not a fan of planting dozens of seedlings. Three eggplant bushes are enough for me. And do not believe me, this year it turned out to be a lot for me. I planted an eggplant ‘Epic’ F1, and it proved to be a super-yielding variety.

I was amazed this year by the size of the eggplants and the yield. Everything would be fine, but the weight of the eggplant fruit was declared to be up to 300 g. We ate it ourselves and handed it out to people, but they all grow and grow. As in a fairy tale – a pot, cook!

Withdrawal from year to year I have the most primitive. I try not to use chemistry. Top dressing for my eggplants is an infusion of freshly cut grass, which I infuse for 1-2 weeks. I breed at the rate of 1 liter of infusion per 10 liters of water and feed each of my plants. Under the bush, I pour the infusion over a liter jar. I believe that this simple feeding is quite enough for the growth and development of plants. 3-4 feeding with this yummy, and the plants thank us with numerous ovaries, and later with fruits.

One eggplant can feed a family.

The year turned out to be not just a fruitful one, but a super-fruitful one. It’s just some kind of eggplant addiction. I have never had such a crop with such a small number of bushes and such large sizes. Can this really be just after several times feeding with herbal infusion? Eh, how they were inflated …
