Our first eggplant!

We are so excited to be growing our own eggplant!  As you know, our raised bed garden is in it’s first summer–and it is one big experiment!  Since we’ve never grown anything down here on the banks of the Columbia, we are just thrilled when we find a vegetable that seems to grow despite the salty and rather stiff breezes.  This eggplant plant looks like it is going to give us a great yield.  We’ll plant more of them next year.  Watch for it in our baba ganoush….

When Ann and Tony Kischner opened the Bridgewater Bistro in Astoria after 25 years operating the Shoalwater restaurant in Seaview, They transformed an 1896 waterfront building, right at the base of the mammoth Astoria-Megler Bridge into one of Astoria's most dramatic dining rooms, where seafood takes a starring role. The kitchen takes advantage of what's fresh and seasonal–including what is grown on site. Savor each bite as night descends on the Columbia.
