Aubergine 1 v 0 Tomato

Saturday was dull with a drop of rain. It wasn't the wet afternoon that was forecast with the daily total amounting to just 2.4mm.

The football season has started again not that I take a great interest. Money rules end of story. Anyway as you can see at the end of week one our mini aubergine Jackpot F1 has scored a narrow victory over our tomatoes.

It has been very close match as we actually do have a tomato, Amish Gold, ready for picking but we decided to use this aubergine for dinner and save the tomato for Sunday. 
It will be a little disappointing if this fruit is suffering from blossom end rot like many of our other tomatoes but from what I can see without actually removing the fruit it looks promising. Maybe other fruits will take the hint and begin to ripen.

  1. I see the aubergine won the toss! It is a thing of beauty.

    We've had some heavy showers and the wind has been up all weekend. Warm though.

    1. And the tomato was sent off for foul play due to blossom end rot!
