Earlier in the year, I started off a number of different vegetables. Some labelled rather haphazardly but I worked out in the end what I was growing, I thought. So, to my delight there seemed to be a large number of pepper plants. But no aubergines.
Now, I think that has all changed.
Last year, I grew two aubergine plants which formed fruit. The flowers were purple. This year, what foxed me was that the flowers were white. Same packet, however.
Now, is it because the aubergine plant has been growing next to peppers that the flowers are white. Or did the packet contain different varieties of aubergine?
Probably neither. But whatever the cause, these ‘peppers’ are turning an interesting shade of purple. So, I might be making ratatouille and aubergine curry, yet. Bliss!
