The Fig Tree

In August we pulled up to the farmers market here and I immediately spotted the “tree man”.

Previously I had gotten a few mango and a clove tree from him. This time, he had a fig tree. Number one on my wish list!

So. We got the fig tree and sort if left it alone in a pot in the backyard. Low and behold — figs actually grew!

We have actually eaten about 4-5 figs from this little tree in a pot! It’s quite amazing. What is it going to do when it actually goes into the earth! Can’t wait!

Immediately sliced and eaten with my few strawberries! Very nice surprise!
