Figs are in
Our friends have gone away leaving their fig tree loaded with fruit. we were only to happy to oblige with the picking job. rain was threatening earlier in the week - so if anything good came from missing the cyclone outfall - it was that the figs didn't all go rotten and the weather is good for drying. We have done a couple of pickings of these dark figs are will probably do another one soon.
So far we have bottled (vacola) and dried figs out the back yard. We are holding off on jam because we seem to have a cupboard full of jams of 7 different kinds - and frankly we only eat in in fits and spurts.
