Figs from our garden

We have twelve olive trees, four fig trees, one pomegranate and a couple of as-yet-unidentified trees. These fruits were picked on Sunday and the black figs were absolutely ripened to perfection, juicy and sweet. Enough to make me change my mind about figs.

I suppose you live in England, and you have figs in your garden? I am from Algarve (Portugal), and I thought this was the land of figs,'s amazing figs grow in cold countries like England!

I do live in England but these are from the garden of our holiday home in Puglia in southern Italy. The mystery is explained :-)
