Could You Give A Fig?

I may seem a little quiet but it's not from lack of interest I assure you and though I may not be leaving a lot of comments, I am certainly reading loads of interesting blog posts.
I have a lot of things pencilled on the calendar and they require a bit of homework to pull them off.
I will certainly be around and here is where you will find me over the coming week....

Tonight at the Living Better Group 
upstairs at the Cock and Bull Launceston Tas from 7-9
All welcome

This Saturday 2nd Feb ut si growers market 8-12

This Sunday 3rd Feb Killiecrankie Nursery open day 10.30-2.30
Talking and demonstrating the value of harvesting herbs. I'll be making healing herbal salve, herbal hair rinse, insect repelling sachets for cupboards and herbal "tub teas" for the bath.

Monday 4th Feb at the West Tamar Discussion Group 7.30-9.30
All welcome to this informal meet-up over a cuppa.
We'll be talking about "Harvest and Produce"
Vicky Cowan of VIX KITCH and Graeme of THIRLSTAN GARDENS will also be there.

Maybe you couldn't give a fig...
I could.
I can give you two in fact.
My fig tree is producing wonderful large almost palm sized fruit but not enough to spare for the market.
Perhaps you have a glut of figs at the moment and if you live locally, why not bring them down to our growers market and spend a lovely morning with us.


  1. i give a fig! i'd love to find some figs--i am not sure i've ever had a fresh fig--only dried ones. if i find some--i'll have to make sure i call on you for some ideas for serving them.
    have fun with the markets!

  2. That photo makes me miss the taste of fresh figs. We had a beautiful fruiting fig tree in Canberra but alas, not up here. Still I do like mangos up here..and have two mango trees in the back yard here.

  3. Tanya, it was just lovely to meet you last night, exchange so many ideas and have the opportunity to pick your brains in good company. Look forward to doing it again!

  4. I just found your blog through a recipe that you posted on Milkwood's facebook page about tomatoes. It was great to see a fellow Northern Tasmanian blog and I decided to fit you into my overstuffed rss feed reader. What is the Living Better Group about? It sounds like something that fits our ethos on Serendipity Farm :)
