September 4th – Old pair of jeans grow on plants???

Oh…. I must get my ears checked,  Aubergines grow on plants 🤣.

Mrs L was given this plant for her birthday from a friend and she is delighted to announce that there are already 2 fruits (yes, fruit not vegetables), and lots more flowers.

According to Wikipedia…..Eggplant, aubergine or brinjal is a plant species in the nightshade family Solanaceae. Solanum melongena is grown worldwide for its edible fruit. Most commonly purple, the spongy, absorbent fruit is used in several cuisines. Typically used as a vegetable in cooking, it is a berry by botanical definition. 

All we need to do now is wait until it gets a little larger and guard it from our Greek house guest, as her speciality is Moussaka.
