The figs are ripening, not all at once but everyday a few. It looks like a good fig-year, last year I had very few figs as we had a couple of late frosts. Normally a fig gives 3 harvests a year in hot countries with long Summers but here in the North of Europe just the first harvest gets ripe, that is when the first lot doesn’t freeze off in early Spring. Tiny figs appear in Autumn so when we get severe frosts in Winter or early in Spring the first harvest is gone. The tree gets figs but they don’t get ripe enough over here.
They taste lovely with a bit of dried ham or with a bit of cream cheese, or both ! Or you can make jam, just fig jam or combined with one or two other fruits.
Did any of you grow fruit in the garden this year?
I hope you are all doing okay !!
