I seem to spend a lot of time waiting and wondering, especially as I am growing one or two new things this year. At last, however, there are more than just leaves on the strongest aubergine plant.
I hope now we will have a return to warmth and sunshine instead of chilly rain. Though perhaps the latter is what has prompted the aubergine to move up a gear.
In Yorkshire there is a saying ‘There’s nowt so funny as folk’; well, my version would be ‘There’s nowt so funny as plants’. They certainly are a quirky bunch.
