This weird weather

Bambino Eggplant
has me concerned. Since I started late this year my peppers and eggplants have yet to mature. I had assumed that late August would be the time I would be able to harvest from these plants, but the unusually cool weather has slowed their growth. I'll be able to get something from the bell and hot peppers, but the eggplants have completely stalled. I grew these mini eggplants well suited for containers. They're supposed to grow to 3 inches in width before you can pick them and so far the largest ones are only 1.5-2 inches wide. I'm hoping for just one heat wave so I can at least harvest one or two.
