I spent a couple of hours yesterday walking around the neighborhood in search of fig trees. I didn’t have to go too far, there are plenty. I did the same
tour last year, but last summer there was a drought and it wasn’t a good year for the fig. This year, the trees are loaded and beautiful. I love the variety
of colors, from bright green newly forming figs, to the brown, sugary ripe ones. All the rain is good for the figs, but also for the flies and mosquitos,
they were my greatest challenge.
