We have….. FIGS!

To our delight, we have discovered that the the little green figs on our figtree have become large-ish, more colourful, soft, ripe fruit! Yum…… 🙂

Out of the whole family, Miss M likes the figs the best…..

Of course, the trick was getting to them before the birds. Mind you, I’m figuring that the ones the birds get to first are at least going to a worthy cause! However, in an effort to try to keep at least SOME figs for ourselves (I know – how incredibly selfish of us!), my good friend Melissa came to the rescue again, this time with some bird netting. Unfortunately, there isn’t quite enough of it, so the birds still get under it and eat all the blessed fruit they like! At least they manage to get back out again, rather than getting stuck. Me thinks the bird netting might as well come down, and next time we’ll get a larger piece!

P.S. Thanks to the neighbour’s visiting tradies for the loan of the ute. They were paid with free figs, of course!
