Our big fig tree continues to amaze me. I keep trying to take a picture that will give you an idea of how huge it is but without me standing in front of it, I’m not getting a good perspective image.
You can see that it is pretty darned big. It’s at least 10′ tall and probably wider than that.
I’ve never seen a fig tree with so many figs. It’s like counting your chickens before they hatch though . . til they’re ripe and picked, I can’t count on them. The grasshoppers are awful. Birds may find them. Heck, my luck . . snakes like figs!
I keep watching this big one. It’s so huge. I think it should be ripe enough to pick tomorrow.
Everywhere I look on that tree . . figs . . and more figs!
The branches grow right down on the ground. Anywhere I step, I’m stepping on a branch or figs. I still haven’t figured out how I”m going to reach the top figs.
I never forget what may be lurking under those low branches. My tall snake boots are scheduled to arrive on Thursday. I’m so hoping they get here earlier!
