Fecund nature

This is a small Japanese pumpkin with an even smaller tomato, posed elegantly against the family silver (not!).






And this is the second ripe fig - amazingly late (I think).  The tree is laden with small hard fruit, which I'd assumed would be the beginning of next summer's figs, but deliciously the figs are ripening one by one - sweet, juicy.  It's a delight living amidst this wonderful abundance of nature - if slightly overwhelming - friends soon tire of receiving the same fruits/veg week after week!
