finger you may see the top of the carrot. If it looks bigger then a dime you can pull it. Make sure your ground isn't hard, if it is wet the area down before you pull it or the top may break off. If it isn't big enough make sure you put the dirt back over it or the carrot will turn green from the sun.

first year with eggplant myself, but I was told to pick them when they are a little bigger then your fist.

You'll see the eggplants all right: they grow above the ground.

Pull one carrot up: then you can see how big the carrot is. It's the root, it grows underground. Small, young carrots are pretty nice, sweet and good. Larger ones have the virtue of being..well...larger. They probably store better too.

The eggplants must first have flowers, then they will form (very obvious) fruits. They take quite a while: mine haven't flowered yet.
