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.
