Year 4 underway! How the time flies! Still taming 2.5 acres of countryside after a life lived in the city. So much learned, so much still to learn.

#aubergine seems happy in the porch! Normally I try to keep them hotter than this but it was drooping even in the potting shed, maybe that's what I've been doing wrong all along... Misting twice a day and it's producing fruit quite nicely 😁 #gyo #nomnomnom

Thanks @sharonhayden I think it likes the extra attention since I'm currently using the porch as my office! 😂

Wow. Looks great. I find mine love heat but they also like a bit of air too. As in they are in the greenhouse but I leave the door and window open so the air circulates. Hope that makes sense !!!!

#Aubergine from the garden centre - despite having fruits it was in kind of poor condition, with a lot of roots coming out the bottom of the pot. Now in a much bigger pot, it looks happier already.

The #aubergine plants seem to be thriving in the cheap #greenhouse 😁

#aubergine Black Beauty repotted, these ones are doing great, but of the Long Purple only one germinated and it's a fraction of the size of these.

#aubergine flower! Unfortunately there's a greenfly infestation going on in the porch so not sure if they will produce healthy fruits, but the flower is beautiful!

I feel like someone said that #aubergine plants are high maintenance, but these have been very well-behaved so far... Just waiting for the other shoe to drop 🤔

Ok, so it's quite likely not to be worth the effort, but I'm still delighted to see this #aubergine #seedling this morning 😄❤
