Fig jam...

My fig jam


 The other day for the first time ever I made fig jam. We have 3 fig trees and a lot of the fruit on it is splitting even though they are not as only hubby & DD eat them and we all LOVE fig jam I decided to try my hand at making it. I googled a few recipes and went for the most simple one.....I'm happy !!
My fig jam & split figs.

My new air conditioner

Today the fitters arrived and our air conditioning was fitted. I worked this afternoon (DD was on days off and stayed here while the fitters worked) and it was sheer bliss to walk in the house after work...ahhhhhhhhhhhh :-)
We have lived in this house for over 17 years and relied on fans for those hot days. We have lawn all the way around the house which is double brick, it gets lots of shade from red gum and other trees and usually the house is cool. But for some reason,  this year we have really felt the heat...I think we must be getting old.


  1. Well done on making the jam and yaaa for aircon!
    We should use our heatpump more for that!

  2. Oh I love figs! The jam looks delish. We planted a fig tree but it is still only small. Did you plant yours and how long did it take to grow figs?

  3. Suzy, fig tree was planted many years ago...and the other 2 were self seeded from it. Can't remember how old our self seeded trees are but I can tell you its just a few years before they fruit if they are well cared for. They are also very long living tree's.
