Well, first of all, WTF, mate? Who did this? Not the Stem Nipper. This is like a small methodical animal with small teeth. Or is it caterpillar? Just the skin, and just two figs.
Also, something's eating a fig leaf, and someone has laid eggs on the underside of another leaf. So I'm waiting to see what hatches. And when they hatch they will want to eat more fig leaves?
Still, the figs are ripening fast; every day some new plump ones, quite perfect inside.
This is the fourth flush of strawberries, I think (Jim Glover's "fern" cultivar), and there are new flowers on the plants. It's really amazing that they keep going. New runners grow longer every day, long, slender green things questing for a nest of soil as far from the parent as possible, it seems: they grow inches every day. The main strawberry pot is now surrounded by small ones so that all the runners root. I think I will see over a dozen new plants from the initial three.
If you could watch any gardening show on TV, what would it be? Apparently the networks have no precedent of a "hit" gardening show so selling any idea is very hard. A bit ironic.
I love the male zuchini flowers. Easy to spot since they are not attached to a zuchini.
I checked on the farm this evening, climbing up with glass of something delicious to drink, and meeting the cat halfway.
It's not necessary to splash but it's much more fun.
Looking down on the Pat Austin rose and the tall spikes of agastache.
The delicious drink.
The end of the light.
