Harvest: Figs!

They are delicious right off the tree. We'll be making jam and other goodies with them.
Nick the Farmer was on a rampage today as he guided us through the do's and don'ts of fig harvesting.
- Only pick when soft. If you pick them before they are ready nobody wins. You or the birds.
- The white fig sap is bad for the skin.
- The fig leaves are itchy.
