The Fun Fig
I recently had the opportunity to enjoy a fig picked right from the tree and it immediately brought me back to my youth. Growing up Italian-American it seemed only natural to have 4 fig trees in my backyard. Of course I later found out that most of my classmates had apple trees in their backyard and that I was the rare person with the fig trees blossoming full of figs in my backyard. Not until I met my husband did I meet someone else that actually knew what it was like to stroll through your Moms garden and pick a hand full of those wonderful sweet and juicy fruits.
