Figs, Figs, Figs. the


Figs, Figs, Figs. the fig tree is still covered with countless figlets, slowly getting larger. darin is anxious to experiment with fig recipes, but i'm not sure when they'll be ripe.

the downside of having such a nice, large fig tree is that it creates a very dense shade. this contributed to the demise of the veggies i tried to plant - when i chose the spot for veggies, the fig tree had not yet leafed out and i didn't realize how dense the shade would be. alas, next spring i'll try another spot. for now, i'm investigating shade lovers for the groundcover (but not asian jasmine or elephant ear).
