Fresh Figs

Right before all the ground shaking excitement on Tuesday, I was in the garden putting in some fall plants and enjoying a snack off of my fig tree.

Usually I am back at work by now and I miss fig season. I managed to make jam every year but rarely got to just enjoy picking figs and eating them right off the tree.

It's the only way to way to eat them.
They change so quickly once they are picked. I have never tried drying them but now that I have the time, I need to figure it out before the squirrels or the hurricane make off with the last of them.

  1. I hear there is now a variety that will grow as far North as we are. Can't wait to track one down. They look heavenly...
