First Fig

I’ve been reviving my vegetable garden the past few weeks. Not so many years ago, I had a fairly large backyard garden, growing tomatoes (of course), squash, zucchini, corn, beans…. I once harvested 200 ears of corn from my backyard patch. When we put the pool in, I lost much of my old garden spot, and haven’t done much vegetable gardening since. I decided a few weeks ago to start again. So, I’ve been preparing beds, planting tomato plants and squash seeds and deciding what else to put in. And yesterday, in the midst of working my little garden, I looked over at the large fig beside my garden, and saw a large, ripe, beautiful purple-bronze fig just begging to be eaten. It called to me, and I complied. It was delicious!
