One of our local friends has a fig tree that is producing abundantly right now. She invited me over to pick my fill on Thursday. I got a nice flat full of deliciously ripe fruit.

A tray load of figs. I see a fig tart coming soon.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, our fig tree is also producing. We got four figs. We may get two or three more if they ripen. Our tree is not the same variety as our friend's tree. I bought it at our local outlet of a big chain garden center thinking, wrongly, that they wouldn't sell something that does not thrive in our area. Caveat emptor.


  1. Walt, you make a blue basket of green figs into an awfully nice picture :)

  2. I now have a friend that gives me figs and in return I try out new recipes and give her copies of ones I think are worthy of a repeat. This year it was this one: - beware if you make it to have plenty of other eaters or you will be tempted to eat way too much!

  3. See if your neighbor will start a fig tree for you from her perfect one.

  4. The subject matter and the colors in that photo are wonderful! SG makes a really good fig quick bread. Just a thought.

  5. judy, thanks!

    melinda, that's a possibility!

    sillygirl, thanks for the idea!

    evelyn, I'll have to look into how to propagate figs... Google here I come!

    bettyann, :)

    mitch, another good idea!


  6. You can root a cutting. I did that before and it works.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
