Poor old fig tree! It’s looking pretty used and abused. It has worked hard and produced lots of figs this year. I’m betting I got over 100 gallons of figs from that tree.
It’s sad to see fig season end but I never dreamed we’d get so many figs of one tree. Once I even ate too many figs and was pretty sick for about 12 hours. I won’t do that again (at least til next year!).
There are still plenty of green figs left but our cool nights will soon be frosty nights and I don’t think many of the green figs will have a chance to get ripe.
We have about 10 fig trees. If ever we have several trees producing like this one did this year, we’re going to have to start selling figs on the street corners.
