Gorgeous! Some people are sadly having beetle problems with theirs.
I’ve seen a couple of the (beautiful) beetles here too. But live and let live, so far. They get some, I get some. Let’s hope it remains in balance.
For the first time I can recall, we have had two fruitings in a year on the fig tree in the garden. And the first lot (fertilised last autumn) are rather tasty right now. An Indian summer will give us a ripened second crop (fertilised in the really hot April – May period) in the late autumn. And not a beetle is sight, thus far.
Just had another tasty four…. I’ve left a corner of the tree to the beetles, and they seem to be leaving another corner to me.
By the way, it is a complete accident that the title of this post is exactly (down to the three little dots I agonized over) the same as one I did last year at around the same time - also about the beginning of the fig crop. After I did the post, I saw that the system was adding a “2″ to the URL (which is automatically constructed from the title),a dn I could not figure out why. So I did a search, and there it was. And I thought I was being so fresh and slightly arch by choosing that title… only to find that I’d done exactly the same thing before. Weird.
How great to celebrate figs year after year!
Yes…. and even better to eat them!
