Figs - August 21, 2010



I love fig season.

I don't like dried figs.

I don't like Fig Newtons.

I like tree-ripened, fresh figs.

I like to stand barefooted in the grass, with my arms and face buried in the giant, fragrant leaves as I search for the perfectly drooping fig, just waiting for me to rescue it just before it drops to the ground, soft and squishy.

I like to photograph them, too.

I love figs.




  1. Ok, so i'm almost foot-stomping jealous.


  2. LOL I would be too, if someone else had figs and I did not. They are SOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD!

    Make sure you put yours in a VERY sheltered location, like a 90 degree nook against the southern side of your house, and not in a frost pocket.

    Some people dig up the roots on one side of the tree (mine remain bushes since then keep restarting) and lay them over, covering them up completely so they stay toasty warm. I might even get them an electric blanket. :)



I always enjoy hearing from others. If you become a regular commenter, I'll assume you are being friendly and pretty much comment regularly right back. :o) God bless and have a terrific day!
