  • Figs by the Pool Grabbing Some Rays

    Hopefully they will get a deep tan and dry out.

      Thanks Ross. I should not have eaten any figs in France, though. Celestes compare so poorly with the French figs, that it is discouraging to think what we are missing here in the States.

      So. ... note to self. Don't eat figs in Europe then come home and eat figs due to substantial disappointment! !

      got it.

      Thanks Frank.

      Welcome home, nice "HAUL" of disappointing American Celeste figs.

        LOL. That is quite a quandary, Scott... to sample figs in Europe and be forever disappointed in our own figs or to remain blissfully ignorant of what we are missing.

        Those are two pretty low bars, Raf.
        Having recently visited Europe yourself , you have got to agree with my thesis to at least a certain degree, no?

      One day under the sun and they are starting to dry out pretty well, so a second tray was set up this morning.
