Rats indeed!  I've never eaten a ripe Fig either, as well as many other fruits I'd like to try.  Avocado, Banana, Coconut, Cranberry, Date, Eggplant, Goji, Guava, Kiwi, Lemon, Lime, Mango, Nectarine, Olive, Orange, Papaya, Passionfruit, Chili Pepper, Persimmon, Pineapple, and many others I'm not familiar with.

Having never (?) eaten a ripe, off-the-tree fig, I don't know what they taste like. Sounds like I'm missing out. Rats. Still, there's plenty of other things that make my mouth water. And right now, everything is coming at once--broc, cabbage, beans, and soon to be, sweet corn! Last night, I couldn't decide which vegetable to eat, so I ate them all in a stir fry!

Thanks Daniel.  Just like most other store produce.  I should have known.

I know what your saying about your favorite garden produce.       I smile.

This is my favorite time of the year also.  The hard work is over (even though I enjoy most of it), and the tedious storage preparation is not yet here.

I just get time to watch things grow, watch the bees doing their thing, eat delicious food, and contemplate what I'm going to do next year.

Daniel, these are beautiful specimens of figs. I am impressed!

Daniel, how does the taste of ripe from the tree figs compare to store purchased figs?

Comment by Randall Smith on July 19, 2014 at 7:02am

WOW!!!!

Patricia, I like the purple one without the green.

Daniel, I didn't realize you had "tests". Thinking of you (no prayers). Plus I appreciate the word I couldn't think of: repurposed! You should see my "repurposed" brick driveway and walkway! (Photo time next go around.)

I mentioned in the food group, today is reorganizing my freezer day. Who knows what I'll find?!

gawdjeezuzzfreezone! is a funny one Patricia.

Patricia, I very much like your gawdjeezuzzfreezone! I would have to store it in a place where I could copy and paste it ... I had trouble getting all the d's and z's in the right places. 

Randy, A torn down garage is the perfect material for a wood shed. I have a high wooden fence that is 18 years old and beginning to lean and needing supports. I was thinking about how I would use the wood when I replace the old one. I don't have room for a woodshed, but I think with a little creativity and imagination, I put that wood to good use. I won't replace it this year, so I have lots of time to think about it. 

Spud, I had raspberries for breakfast in the garden, too. They are so good. Yes, I find they get better as the season goes on. Sadly, it is over far too fast. I noticed my blueberries had a great struggle this year because of the failure of my soaker system. That is all replaced now and the bushes are already putting out healthy, robust leaves and the berries begin to fatten and ripen. Can't wait to get that first one in my mouth. 

Daniel, thinking about you and hoping you have good news to share about your test. It is only Thursday and those reports come awfully slowly. It may be another week; whatever the outcome, we stand with you.
