My two fig trees, which are actually still bushes at this point in time, are growing well. Last year one appeared to be on its last legs, I thought for sure was not going to over-Winter. It survived, and is now several feet tall with some very tiny figs popping out. The other larger bush was where I picked just one or two ripe figs last year, before birds/squirrels grabbed the rest....................but look what I picked yesterday, a handful of pretty fresh, ripe figs. Just enough to bake in the oven with butter and broken walnuts, then top with acacia honey and a dollop of mascarpone, for two special tiny desserts.
Next year, enough for figgy jam perhaps!
