Garden Journal: Harvesting figs

It's that time of year again, my fig tree is bursting with fruit.  I have been harvesting and making my signature fig-ginger jam  almost every week now. Can you believe I bought this variegated fig tree to use the branches with fruit in flower arrangements? As it turns out, these candy-striped figs are not only beautiful to look at but scrumptious to eat as well. They taste like candy.

  1. You lucky girl! We just planted a fig tree this year. Can't wait until we have our first fig.

  2. Your fruits, veggies, and flowers always look wonderful!

  3. Komali, how blessed you are to have that bounty! I love figs and have to buy them. At the farmers marker yesterday they were 12 figs for $5! I couldn't resist when I found 12 for $3.50. You didn't know you had gold there did you?
