Brown and tasty, but with a sting ...

30th August 2015

While we were away in France, the fig trees went nuts.   There are stacks of ripe fruit just calling to be picked.   There were a fair few of the fruits which have gone over, but the birds are seeing to those ones.

While picking some of the riper fruits today, I also realised that the wasps are making a meal of ones that are very ripe and have split with the recent rain


One little sod stung me on the side of the finger!

I will be wearing my thick red rubber gloves from now on to pick the fruit :(
