Last year, our fig harvest consisted of exactly one fig. Our friend Alison happened to be visiting when it ripened, so we split it three ways.
This year, our Brown Turkey fig tree has twelve figs on it. Although we expect to lose some to varmint or mishap, this year’s crop should still be multiples of last year’s. I’m hoping for an order of magnitude. If that’s a trend we can sustain, we’ll be fig magnates by 2015.
A couple of the figs have just started to soften and darken. The fig watch begins.
