• Fruity Goings-On

    15th November 2011In The GardenStephanie Donaldson

    The raspberries aren’t that unusual for early November, although they are in particularly fine condition, but the 2lbs of ripe figs that my sister picked in her garden yesterday are a first.  She had gone out to rake up all the leaves that had dropped and then looked up to find the nearly bare tree still had a fine crop of fruit.  She now has several pots of fig jam.
