Figs… beautiful, purple ombre jewels. They are plump, exotic, sweet, and luscious; just begging to be eaten.
The fig tree is loaded with beautiful figs for the second year. It is amazing that this little, weird-looking tree (reminds me of Dr. Seuss art work) produces so much fruit. The tree is a volunteer in my front yard. It sprouted out of no where and has grown very quickly.
And a heads up, my kids devoured one loaf last night. I doubt the second loaf will last the day.
