Does anyone know what this veggie plant is.....

I got my self in a bit of a pickle :) I started a load seeds but on one flat I failed to label what I planted. Since I had a couple of different seeds I cannot figure out what it is. I was considering just planting and figuring it out as it grows but my garden is currently busting at the seams so I need to figure out if I am going to keep or plant them all.

here is a pic of the seeds

Yes it does look a lot like eggplant. You should treat them very gently and not get them out to the garden until it's warm both for soil and outside temps. Eggplants are fussybutt's and they don't take to cold at all. I know because in my hast to get things planted I killed one by putting it out to early :lol:

My eggplants went out over Memorial Day weekend and they are just fine. Mine were not small seedlings but good sized plants and well rooted in 5" pots. I have baby eggplants. :D :D :D

It has been raining and cold all weekend but these guys/gals just love their 12 gal pots.

Those eggplants look very young! I wouldn't put those out just yet. They look quite healthy. You could strt taking them out and hardening them off though - would make it easier in a few weeks to put them in the ground.

What variety are you growing?
