free plants

Hi All,
I was at a customer site yesterday when the local potted plant grower came by to pick up his unsold plants. Now I can't sprout anything as the accursed earwigs eat them. So no eggplant this year.
Anyway, I asked the guy if he had any eggplant left. He said sure and gave me a 16" tall eggplant he could sell. Yours to keep. So, growing in his pot versus grown in my yard, not much difference. And it is still alive today.
And I bought another close out eggplant and two heirloom chimayo peppers from Wal mart. They are alive today too. Go figure!
So, maybe I will get some eggplant this season!
Transplanted some tomatillo that sprouted up in my old garden to holes were I "was" going to put eggplant and new Amarillo tomatillo. They are still alive today too. Huh. I kill everything I touch.
Also of interest, I had to dig a bigger hole in one of my previous holes for the huge potted eggplant. Had to remove two cantaloupe sized rocks to make it deeper. This hole I had filled with weeds a month earlier. I could find no sign of the weeds, so mother nature had done its thing!
Accursed earwigs!
