Not that long ago all the flowers were out, blooming away merrily. Now look what's happened.

We have pomegranates on the trees.



Luscious figs. They are ripening fast and bursting open. No one seems to pick them and they just drop off and get squashed on the ground.



The olives are coming along just fine. They have a long way to go yet though, harvesting doesn't start till around January.



The grapes are getting there too. Yum yum.

It won't be long before I'm picking my walnuts.


Wonder when it's time to pick them, how do you tell when they are ripe?

I know a man who will tell me, just got to find the time to go and see him.

Wow - lucky you! How wonderful to be able to grow such things in your garden and appreciate them! xxx

Everything is growing really well for you. I hope the sun is shining over the Greek islands - we are off to Ithica in two weeks and I am desperate for the kind of sun that lasts for more than 30 minutes at a time :-)

Those figs look so good. They are my favorite fruit. My grandmother made the best fig perserves ever! Everything grows beautifully there! Enjoy!
