The eggplant trees were planted in the beginning of May and I thought their cropping season would have ended and I would pick up the trees in a few days for more space for next vegetables.
Eggplants harvested in autumn are so delicious that there is a Japanese proverb saying " Don't let a daughter in law eat autumn eggplants. ". That means an eggplant is effective for cooling down body temperature so eating eggplants is not good for a pregnant daughter in law, which can affect the growth of her baby.
But the proverb has "a Hidden meaning " ,which says the mother in law doesn't want to share the delicious eggplants with her so she pretends to be "so kind" of giving " the Good advice" to her. It's ironic, isn't it?
