{291} Fig tree, originally uploaded by The Inadvertent Gardener.

My coworker, Sara, emailed me Sunday to let me know the figs on her backyard tree were ripe, and I was welcome to come get some. I adore fresh figs, but have never gotten them straight off the tree before…they were a heavenly treat. And this? This is part of why I adore living in California.

  1. Genie – if you ever come visit me in TN in the summer, we can sit in between my fig trees and gorge ourselves. I had to plant fig trees so I could taste a fresh fig because you can’t buy them around here. So one got planted. And we’ve bought two more with more to be added next year.

  2. Kristina, awwwww yeah! And that totally qualifies as very local. :-) That is an excellent invitation.
