I’m sick to the back teeth of aubergines, we have half a dozen jars of brinjal in the fridge, and have given as many away. We have 3 kilos of ratatouille and 3 kilos of aubergine curry in the freezer, and have eaten as much again. There is also only so much moussaka one can eat, ditto grilled aubergine! I give away approximately 4 kilos of aubergine a week, and only the not-so-nice ones are retained for the above home processing.
Lesson learned, I shall only retain a few plants at the end of this season, along with some peppers, tomatoes, chillies and a courgette plant.
And a note on courgettes…..in the uk our courgettes grew so prolifically we couldn’t give enough of them away, here I have one tiny courgette just ripening from 3 plants!
