Fig Season

Today I had what may have been my last fig of the season.  There are two small fig trees on my deck.  One is a start from my grandpa's tree, and still only a few feet tall.  I purchased the larger tree at my local garden store several years ago. 

If you haven't tasted the difference between a store bought fig and a fresh one picked from the tree, trust me when I say there is no comparison.  None.  My own crop is very small.  One or two figs here, three or four there.  More often than I would like, there is nothing ripe and ready to eat.  Sometimes I will purchase a basket of figs from the supermarket, but each time I end up disappointed.  Fresh figs are the only way to go!
