    Wanted to give a shout out about the quality of the vegetable starts this year. Best tomatoes ever. And the Japanese eggplant was excellent. We are still eating tomatoes off the inside hanging vines, and just finished the last of the eggplant. Please source the same eggplant next year. I have grown for 30 years and these were easily the best.
