I apologise, Alan.  I often give the same advice about removing small figs late in the Autumn I get in a muddle about how many people I have said it to!!

Wait!!  Golf ball size.  We are in August, these may ripen.  Give them time.

Alan, did I not answer this question for you recently?

MRweeds has just said the same thing that I said.

They will come loose from the soil when they are ready as the roots die back.  You can of course use them in the kitchen now, but I'm sure you're doing that already.

If any have bolted - put up a flower spike - use those first, they will not store.

If they are broken you can hang the whole plant up (it will be upside-down, but no matter) and the tomatoes will ripen.

It is usual to wait until the first frost has collapsed the foliage.  Maybe that was what you meant.  I usually remove most of the soil from the tuber, make sure they are labelled and the stems cut down and and leave them upside down for a little while to dry out a bit before I store them somewhere cool but frost-free.

Deadly nightshade is quite different.  Not at all common and confined to chalk soils. And a shrubby plant, not a twiner.  And it has black berries; I think the one pictured will have green (already in the photo) ripening to red/orange berries.

Looked like that to me too.  In other words a weed.  Woody Nightshade.
