FIG J(l)AM(g)

Update from the Garden
I haven't done an 'update from the garden for a while' but judging my the state of things summer has well and truly began in Yuen Long. Lot's of sun means everything flourishing; the lemon grass I brought back from my Elcho Island is out of control, while basil and chillies are thriving and there's a tree bursting with baby guavas. But the current highlight are the first of the truly divine figs I started picking this weekend. While probably not enough to make jam these little delights are delicious straight from the tree, warm from the sun. Just look at my garden!
