Fresh Figs

IMGA0560Apparently, people have fig trees in their yard like some people have random apple trees up north.

One of the people who attend the same church services we do gave us some fresh figs. They are a definitely not the prune-y type I usually buy online.

As it turns out, figs have an extremely short shelf life. So short, it’s not likely you’ll find them in stores either. According to the person who gave me these, they’re usually made into preserves immediately after picking.

The kids were hesitant to try them. By hesitant, I mean, Sarah had wrinkled her nose at it, and Nathan had dry heaves. The rest seemed to have “forgotten” they existed.

I told them that they better learn to like them as figs will be the first thing I plant when we buy some property. That and date palms. It seems that they grow well here, too.

  1. At this time it sounds like Movable Type is the best blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    No off topic links in posts.

    • I use WordPress for my personal blog. I don’t have a problem with hackers, but I do have a serious problem with spammers. Spammers take huge amounts of my time that could be spent blogging or responding to legitimate comments, or promoting my blog.

      Since I’ve been asked this a lot, I use WordPress for my family blog but I use Blogger for my Tech blog. I typically recommend blogger to people who have no clue in Webdesign. I use WordPress for my family blog so that I can have it hosted on the same server as my website.
