Jenny and I have picked many kilos of figs this summer and our cupboards are full of jams and chutney already. We thought that the fig tree were exhausted and had finished for this year. Imagine my surprise at finding a tree with loads of ripe figs, ready to pick, and on 9 November. I picked 6 kilos of figs and filled a trug. Our guests had fresh figs for breakfast this morning and Jenny has made some more jam this afternoon. Things in the garden are definitely a little wonky this year, as we also have several rhododendrons in flower now and some of the magnolias have some pretty advanced buds on them. They are all in for a massive shock soon.
