Do I have to limit number of peppers or aubergines fruiting to get decent sizes?
Just in passing on the subject of tomatoes - Tomato leaves make an excellent strong insecticide against ants/mosquitos/leek moths & cabbage white butterflies. Put trimmings in plastic bucket add 3 times their volume in rainwater, leave for several days (fermentation starts the 3rd day) Filter when nice and smelly and pour over the soil around brassicas/onion family and ant nests. Not only does this brew act as a deterrent, but it also encourages strong plant growth. You could just chuck the leaves on the compost, but I prefer to make a 'Brew' and recycle. The biodynamic way.
