I'm growing eggplant this year for the first time. I've got several on the plants but they aren't as big as I've seen in the stores. I'm a bit concerned because July in Texas gets really hot. I'm not sure how much longer I should wait before I pick them. What should they look like when ready?

You should harvest in the fall.  The plant will continue to grow through the summer and become mature.  You shouldn't be to concerned that it is a bit small right now.
