Aubergine tragedy

In early September I was wondering whether my mini aubergine would get large enough to harvest…. it was quite small back then as you can see in my Teeny tiny aubergine post.

Well it did grow quite well and it looked lovely and glossy and like it might be a winner.


Then something awful happened….

The snails that had been plaguing the runner beans got to it.


I was able to salvage about half of it.

Not really enough for a moussaka.

And possibly the most expensive half aubergine ever.

Not sure I’ll try again next year.
