  • Perhaps we should all live here!

    I had a great 5 day trip to see the in-laws in mid Florida over the Easter break. There really was not much time to explore for figs but this caught my eye

    While driving in a small town, I entered a division called Blueberry Estates. The only thing was, after driving around the whole thing, there wasn't a single blueberry bush in sight. Lesson: always look behind the curtain!

      Sounds good, Ian. How cool would that be? A community of fig lovers growing the best varieties and sharing with one another, face-to-face.

        I think the condo commission banned fig trees from their accepted list.

        I have an idea for a pork loin remoulade with sliced fresh dark berry flavor figs with fresh basil, Rosemary, and goat cheese. Have yet to make it, but have been thinking about making it for months now....

        I smell a trap!

        I see only palm trees and no figs. Or at least the name is out of date and the figs are all long gone, would be better to rename it Palm Tree Village. No redwoods to be found here in Redwood City either, but at least I *know* there are figs all over.

          That would be a great name for a fig greenhouse.

            So often housing developments are named after what was destroyed in order to clear space to build the development. That's probably the case for "Fig Tree Village".

              Yep. There is an area close to me with about 100 acres of houses which used to be an orchard back in the day. All the streets are named after apple varieties. Not sure if any apple trees exist though.

              Of course, if I lived in "Fig Tree Village" I would do my part to help it to live up to its name!
