Do I give a fig ..... yes I do .... to Lovely Hubby with virtually every meal.
They're good with porridge, sliced into cereal, eaten with little lumps of Feta for an impromptu snack ...
... but best of all he likes them in salads.
Any salad will do as long as it has a minimum of three figs. It's not a bad obsession and it's one I'm definitely encouraging because I hate the things, they're much too sweet for me and they somehow just look wrong!
I know that sounds daft but ....... YUK!!
It's a good job one of us likes them, this is how many we've been getting every other day for the last two weeks.
We are trying to get branches from the huge plant growing at the side of this house to root, one of them definitely has roots on (I pulled it up to look ...... hehe, and then quickly replanted it) and the other two look promising, the fourth pinged back up out of it's pot determined that it would not stay held down for neither love nor money, thank goodness is all I say.
If we are getting this much fruit from one plant how many would we get from four?
