Harvest Monday: Figs, August 9, 2021

Harvest Monday and Our World Tuesday

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, August 8, 2021
Our figs are getting ripe!

Something, probably a rabbit, has been eating those close to the ground. Or it might have been our dog!

We pick only as much as we can eat in a couple of days because figs are fragile and do not keep well. They can be cooked and made into fig preserves, but we prefer to eat them fresh.

I hope you have a great week!

I am linking in today with Harvest Monday and, on Tuesday, with Our World Tuesday

  1. How wonderful...I'm imagining the taste right now!

  2. Those are some lovely figs! Too bad about something eating them though. I had trouble with ants getting in them when I grew them here.

  3. Hello,
    You have a nice harvest of figs. Have a great week!

  4. They look delicious. Wish they could grow here.

  5. Hmm, I love figs but I don't think that I have ever had fresh ones.

  6. Yum! This has me thinking about my great-grandmother's amazing fig-stuffed cookies; definitely a favorite. Enjoy them fresh and in your favorite recipes! :)

  7. There is nothing like fresh homegrown figs. Those with trees in our neighborhood anticipate a harvest in the next few weeks. They are a seasonal treat.

  8. If I were able to pick figs in my backyard I would be transported to a whole new realm of ecstacy!

  9. Fresh figs are so yummy. I am jealous!!

  10. Yum! They really look good. I bought a tiny seedling 2 yrs ago and it is doing quite well---thank goodness


I enjoy your comments!
