A clear and breezy late evening and the fig tree has the shakes. Or the trembles. Or maybe it is just beginning to get a lot cooler in the evenings and it's shivering. All we know is that the promised bumper crop hasn't developed as we hoped it would. There are lots of figs on the tree but they just haven't matured despite the diligent watering and feeding throughout the July and August heatwave.
We had a few to eat early on in the summer but the glut that seemed to be just over the horizon hasn't transpired, very disappointing.
Now the fig tree has simply got a serious touch of the autumns. Never mind, there's always next year.
