You should remove any in winter that are bigger than a pea Barbara, then they will get bigger a juicer! I have three fig trees and I'm the only one that eats them, I do bottle them as well, you can also make chutney, nicely captured, I particularly like the house reflected in the droplet which is very clear Barbara, might be worth cropping a copy see if you can enlarge it! worth a try!, nice one very well composed and presented, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinTongueWink
