I've never had so many aubergines, even when I grew 10 plants in the poly-tunnel at the smallholding when I was growing to sell.
Last year I had 3 plants in pots in the greenhouse and got about 3 aubergines so this year I grew more................ and with this heat 5 plants in pots have produced about 30 aubergines, all sizes and still growing.
I've given some away, I've made 10 portions of aubergine and tomato sauce for pasta to put in the freezer, I'll give more away.
But what's the betting that if I only grow a couple of plants next year, it will be cold and gloomy and I'll get 2 aubergines.
And talking about cold and gloomy, what a different day yesterday was here in Suffolk, a gloomy 17℃ according to my phone and lots of steady rain. What a drastic change compared to the last couple of months. I prefer a bit warmer than 17, although over 30℃ was a bit much.
I got started on sanding down the bedroom in preparation for decorating.......it's going to be a long job and at the moment I'd rather be watching the European Championships on TV. A good idea to put all the different sports' European competitions together to make a big event. The things some people do for sport always amazes me - the open water swimming for miles in Loch Lomond -Brrrrrr and diving off that high board - crazy, and as for the triathlon............who on earth had the idea to put three sports together just for fun!
Many thanks for comments yesterday and hello and welcome to new followers, almost back to the 420 on my old blog.
