Make the most of your summer crops

After tidying up the mess in my vege patch on Sunday I took stock of the remaining summer crops. My globe shaped eggplants are smothered in half size fruit – there’s probably 15-20 of them there and with the warm weather each stem is furiously making additional flowers for even more fruit. There’s really only one month left of eggplant ripening weather. Realistically those new flowers haven’t got time to form and grow an eggplant and they are draining the plants energies from the semi-mature fruits. I made the call and cut all remaining flowers off and shortened the stems. Better 15 eggplants in the hand.

Anyone have any queries?
