Figs in the sun

I am watering the fig twice a day at the moment, so it is a very good thing that we do not go away in the summer. Even a weekend off is a problem. This is the so-called fall crop, which will ripen, if all goes well, in September. My first crop (breba crop is the proper name: fruit on previous season's wood) usually drops off.

I checked on the roof farm again this morning and found some ripe tomatoes and ripe cucumbers. They grow like the blazes and are very prickly. Pictures later.
