new fence posts will soon replace this rotten old ones
… some will go to our Furniture Wiz who makes fascinating furniture from old fences and bed slats!Β  Those that are too rotten will be gratefully used as firewood.

this magnificent Morton Bay fig has been around a while and every year it bears hundreds, maybe even thousands of fruit … note the tyre swing and it’s outside the neighbours fence line so that means it’s a free for all to pick the produce in a few weeks, yum


  1. What a majestic tree! My sister has a fig tree in her yard and she does not know what to do with the figs other than to make fig jams and stuff. I am not a fan of figs but am told it has great nutritional values.

      • Ha! That’s so cute! πŸ™‚ The tree’s limbs would have to be a lot lower to the ground, than the trees we climbed as kids, for me to give it a go today! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ She could be the official/designated tree climber and you could be the official/designated tree-climber watcher! πŸ˜›

  3. There is a fruit tree in the neighborhood… I think a type of plum. I wouldn’t just want to pick it – but I think the owners don’t know what to do with it. Unfortunately most of the fruit falls and is just bug and bird food. One day I might just get up the nerve to ask them if I can have some. Maybe make a preserve or jam? I know other friends who had a grape arbor but didn’t use the fruit at least they let another neighbor pick the grapes and make jelly.

    I gift all my stale bread to the fish in the creek πŸ™‚
