    I doubt that eggplant would be good after being frozen.

    Apparently it can be sliced. probably blanched, and then frozen. But the article I saw was only freezing it short term. I'd better come up with something because 2 will feed us for days and I've got another dozen coming!

    I can see how Blancheing it might make it right for freezing.

    I only have three bean pole tripods in my garden. So far I've gotten 30 quarts of beans. I still have at least as many immature beans on my plants. My corn has done even better.


    I planted peas last week and they are already coming up. I read where peas can be planted in late summer or early fall, so I thought I'd try it. I also planted more radishes and onions at the same time. They are all doing well too.

    I think the blanching suggestion is a good bet, although, without knowing your freezer situation, I'm also thinking, just freeze the finished parm product, the sauce should keep the eggplant from drying out in the deep freeze...at least for quite a bit longer...

    I wound up blanching and freezing the eggplant and will have another batch before we are done, plus I've been eating eggplant parm again. It was a great year for the garden.
