Yay, I found out I have a huge fig tree on my property. They should be ready by fall and there are a lot to pick. I am learning how to freeze them gently so that I can enjoy the bounty through the winter.
A fig busily ripening.
Fig leaves are huge! I never knew they were this big. “Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings. ” A few leaves certainly could cover the mid-section. Sadly.
The blinding summer July sun shines through the thickest of fig leaves at the top of the tree.
