The Solanaceae

As I was walking along a sidewalk in Quincy looking for things to photograph, a friend offered me this eggplant.  I love eggplant parmesan, so I gladly accepted.  Then I had a flashback on a poem I wrote years ago titled "Ode to Solanceae" in which I extolled the virtues of the many edible and tasty members of this plant family, tomatoes, peppers, etc., and the Poisonous Nightshade.  If I can find an old copy of that poem, I'll add it to this post along with some nature notes that occurred to me when I wrote it.
