Although in this case, it will have to be transformed into the rather more transient joy of dinner.
The aubergines here are nearly over now. But this plant really did save the best til last...This is an Italian variety, gorgeous.
Their vegetable seeds do well in southern UK. A lot of veg grown in Italy has to cope with the colder temperatures found in some of the more mountainous terrain there.
Might have to visit, on a 'works' fact finding mission..? 😊
