And I have prickles in my fingers after pinching prickly pear fruit from the laneway. I am already planning to go and get more for jam. Such good colour and flavour inside that irritable skin. Suffer for your preserves. Fool.
I also got some early figs from the giant tree. It is laden with nearly ready nearly reachable fat figs. It made 3 jars. I wish I had an oven to bake some scones.
