Aubergine development

Today the aubergine seedlings were potted on to the next stage.  Only 96 plants remain at this stage so if each bear four or five good fruits we might have to make do with less than 500 home grown aubergines this year.

Last year, on our urban allotment we harvested about a dozen.  Here are some of them, together with other produce we grew there:

I must admit those were grown from bought in plants whereas here, so far, everything has been grown from seed. This hotbed, where the aubergines nestle, seems to be working well

It is now quite a few weeks since it was made and the minimum temperature overnight for these plants is regularly five or six degrees higher than else where in the polytunnel.
