Figs

Hang up your Chisels and Plane blades and take a load off with a recently turned goblet of your favourite poison, in the lounge of our Gentlemen's (and ladies) Club.

Figs

Got these before the birds had devoured them.

Lots more but too high for me to reach and I cannot manage ladders anymore.
Tree Surgeon booked for mid September to trim this and others to a manageable height.

Lemon bush has produced about a dozen fruits

they look very green Rod. Are they ripe? Do they ripen off the tree? the figs we scrump around here are much darker even brown.
cheers

Yes they are ripe and very soft. If I left them to go brown the birds would have them all.

I planted it a few years ago but cannot remember the variety. Brown Turkey is a common one.
You are supposed to contain the roots but this has “escaped”. It grows a tremendous amount each year.

Still, some success with the flowers this year
