  • Neighbor Gave me a Basket of Figs

    My neighbor stopped by and gave me a basket of figs. They’re pretty good “BT.”

    I’ll repay him next year when my premium crop is ripe =)

    Very nice of them, but your neighbor needs a lesson on when a fig is ripe and ready for picking -- I'm seeing a lot of latex oozing which is a tell-tale sign of under ripe figs.

      Figology it’s already a huge improvement from a non-caprified one.

      I think it's wonderful that you were gifted those figs. You have a really good neighbor. Enjoy them. I like mine with a little bit of sap in the stem.

        I hope to do the same in the neighborhood once I get my mini orchard established. I already planted lemons and oranges for people to pick when they walk by. Had tomatoes there this season too.

            It's neighbors like that we all could use more of. Great gesture.

                They look delicious. Are you sure they are Brown Turkey? The reason I ask is every picture I see usually they have a hollow center.
