Three Generations

Sunday just got better as the day progressed. A dull cloudy start in the morning turned into a lovely mild sunny afternoon. It finished up as our warmest day of the year with the temperature making it to 19.6°C at 17:27
You may well have noticed that yesterday we both blogged about our Brown Turkey fig tree that is growing in a large pot in the greenhouse. I hadn't noticed before that it is now producing a new smaller set of figlets and now has three generations of fruit on the same tree.
Near the top of this picture and a little out of focus is one of the larger figs that has over wintered. Towards the bottom is a smaller darker green fig. This generation started to appear a few weeks ago and then yesterday I noticed a new smaller set of figs appearing. There’s another 3 very small figs on this branch alone. We could be heading for fig heaven or a big disappointment.
