Ouch it was hot today. Too hot for digging that’s for sure. It was too hot for my aubergine plants stashed in the (not so) cold frame so I gave them a refreshing spray of cool water when I finally hauled my booty up to mtp at around 5pm. While I was spraying I noticed that they are flowering! This is the biggest of the flowers. The others are still thinking about producing their own flower. I like to think of this guy as the ring leader. He’s pretty much the cocky one of the bunch, wants all the attention, that kind of thing. Hopefully now that he’s proved his point, the others will follow suit soon enough and we could be looking at a healthy crop of aubergines (or eggplant as Ryan will have it). I love the way that the water sticks to the tiny hairs on the stem. It’s pretty, in a dark and mysterious kinda way.
