I have thought about growing aubergines before but this is the first year that I have have taken the first steps from thought to reality. The seeds are now sown, the die is cast.
With a bit of luck I should be seeing a few seedlings poking through the compost by the end of this week. Provided I then manage to cosset the young plants through their early weeks and keep them sufficiently fed and watered thereafter I should have one of the raw materials for Moussaka by the beginning of September. I wonder if there is any other method of processing these purple fruits?
