Fruit and berries

The plum harvest lasted a week. The peaches a month. I ate all the tangerines (and they were good; the time I spent ignoring them was just perfect for them to ripen). So what's left?
Figs are so plentiful that I feel like it's my job to eat them... rather than a treat. Need to focus on finding a fig newton recipe next weekend. But, what's much more exciting is the little figlets that are just barely budding off the tree that is probably 2 feet tall from the winter cutting.
The gigantic blackberries made my day. This is the 3rd season I've had berries off this bush, but for some reason they are twice as big as usual and round. The pic doesn't do them justice, but the flavor is amazing.
