I feel like I am the one who loves figs (besides my mom). Our sweet neighbors who have moved on have a fig tree in their front yard. The house is empty and it was killing me that these figs were not getting eaten. So me and the kiddos have been sneaking over and picking them. I'm sad because they are pretty much gone. There was a fig tree in my childhood, but I can't remember where it was....they remind me of being little. Thought I would get fancy and cook with them, but I ate them all.
