ZACK!!! I’m so happy for you man! Don’t I remember you saying that you had never had fresh figs before? Was this your first? Was it love at first bite like it was for me a few years ago? I’m so glad you have some fruit coming in, and IMHO figs are one of the best! Believe it or not, even though I only live a short distance fro you, none of my figs have ripened yet.
BTW…those look ripe for sure, but I encourage you to leave a few on longer than that so you can try them. I like to let them crack and turn into little bags of jelly (that will make sense when you try a dead ripe one). anyway, I’m so glad to see you are getting some fruit neighbor!
