Well, now I've decided to see how long I can keep the eggplant alive and if it will grow / ripen the other fruit.
The other night, the temps got down to 35, so I ask hubby to put a trash bag over the eggplant for the night. Well hubby decided to use 6 mil plastic to cover the eggplant. Needless to say that created a sauna like environment and the eggplant suffered. So 'The Eggplant Experiment' has not gotten off to a great start. BUT, its still alive, so we will see. Oh and I now have 1.5 mil plastic.
