Figs

The figs from our fig bush are ripe. Well, they’ve been ripening for the whole months and some still have some time to go, but some of them are perfectly soft and ready to eat. Mika asks me for “higos”, only she forgets the word and sometimes seems to say “eeco”. Our routine is that I select those who are very soft without having turned dark, rip them apart, give her half and take half fo myself. Then we chew the sweet (but not too sweet) pink pulp and throw the peels on the ground – where they’ll be quickly eaten by birds or other creatures.
Mika is not very efficient in her eating, but she keeps asking for more and more. The bush is pretty small so it doesn’t give too many, but they are very good. Tomorrow if we go out I’ll take the camera and try to take a picture of them.
