Bounty

Hi there! What's new in your neck of the woods? Did you have a busy weekend?


My big exciting news of the day is some of my figs are ripe! I've had my eye on them and SUDDENLY Saturday they were dark and by Sunday midday there were a handful of ripe ones. I'm not a  fan of figs myself, but my mother LOVES THEM. This year has been the best year for them! Back in May when I went to Quilt Market and Minnesota for 2 weeks, Bret was in charge of watering, and when I came home the tree was loaded! Clearly he has a green thumb when it comes to figs.  

I'm sure that there were other things, I'm on a fig growing high. Maybe tomorrow I'll have some sewing to talk about.

How pretty and makes me wish for Fall. Of course everything is making me want Fall. I am not a summer fan.
Hope you don't have to go into Figgy Rehab

I'm excited that you are so excited about your figs. We had a fig tree once that was THE bane of our existence. What do you do with yours?

While walking to the store yesterday, I noticed the figs on a neighbor's tree were getting ripe too (here in New York). They looked really good too.

We used to have dried figs every year at Thanksgiving - yuck - they could break your teeth. Found out many, many years later that fresh figs are really good. Hope you try them again?

Does Raisin Bret make house calls? I want him to water my yard, too. It needs his help!!! Love your figs, even though I have no clue what to do with them… but they sure are beautiful! XXOO??!!

It's funny how excited you are about something you don't like to eat. Do you dislike dried figs too? I love them dried but dislike them fresh. Fig trees, though, whether you like the fruit or not, are gorgeous!
