When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Ficus carica 'Brown Turkey'

First #harvest and it’s the best tasting #fig I’ve had since plucking one from a tree in the South of France 😋

The tiny little figs are still holding on Jacqueline, the exact same thing happened last year though, I should know better and keep my eyes on it and even give it more water 🤨

11 May 3018 • Look what the postie brought 😊 This is tinged with sadness though, as the one we have already had just made it high enough to get light from over a wall & give us figs, when someone jumped off the wall onto it and broke most of the trunk... OH was so sad this seemed the best solution 😍 #gyo

What a lovely postman you have. Feel a bit sad why you had to buy a replacement ☹☹☹

Your replacement is lovely but so sad that you had to replace your original plant.

I know. Me too Charlotte & Sophie. We had had the other for years from being tiny in a tiny pot but it took a long time for it to reach the top of the wall - and hence the light - and we just didn’t want to have to wait all that time again. I think it will be worth it... @charlotte @Soph1e
