Our figs are finally starting to get ripe. Usually by late June, we’re getting figs. By the middle of July, we’re getting buckets of figs. This year, we got a couple over the past few days.
Yesterday we got 10. There are a lot of green figs but this year we’re not going to get nearly as many as in previous years. I would like to make some fig preserves because there’s a fig cake I love and it uses fig preserves. Otherwise, I hope to get enough to freeze dry 20 or so pints, and enough for us to eat and, then, I’ll be happy.
Speaking of fruit, we have a couple of jujube trees we planted last year and they’re producing this year. They’re different from our old jujube. Vince found a ripe one yesterday and ate it. Thanks for sharing, Vince! 🙂
He came in telling me how sweet it was. He said it was so sweet, he couldn’t get the sweetness out of his mouth. I wanted to say “Ahh . . on our anniversary . . something as sweet as your wife!” but decided it would be better not to say that! 🙂
Now, I can hardly wait to try one of those jujubes.
Thank you for posting about your fig tree. I probably posted a couple years back about my folks having one fig tree on their 2 acres of land in California. That fig tree produced the best tasting figs, which I picked and ate on the spot or just sat in the dirt under the tree and ate the figs. I don’t think my Mom ever made anything with them. It brings back good memories.

Sounds good! But at least he told you he did it!
If/when you move will you be able to take some of your fruit bushes and trees with you? If not you’ll be canning, preserving like crazy to take as much as you can with you!!
You better watch that Vince! He’ll be out there getting all those berries! I’m glad your figs are going to produce some for you, at least, since so many other things didn’t this year.
