What's New in Your Garden?


Yesterday, we discovered these.
Lots and lots of these.


We have a fig tree - hidden behind a shed and we often forget to check on it.
But yesterday, we remembered.


If you have never had a fresh warm fig from a tree, then I am sorry to say, 
you are really missing something quite great.  
I really am sorry to say that.  


So into the kitchen.
Turning this...


..into this.


Mixing these with this... and a drizzle or two of that...


And don't forget a few of these, roasted of course.
Dinner is served.


If the abundance of figs was not enough, Cocoa laid her first egg today.
Honestly, who decided white eggs were so grand!!
Can you imagine opening up a box of eggs and seeing these pretty shades.
Anything new in your garden?

Hello Heather. i have not had to warm fig off the tree experience. However, I did, just minutes ago, have the freshly picked passionfruit off the vine experience. OMG, it was so good. You must tell me where Cocoa laid her egg?
have a sunny weekend

I would love to have fresh multi coloured eggs. So beautiful with the bron and bluey one. I recently bought a dozen whites from Sobeys and everyone of them was a double yolk. Tiny yolks, but double....made me thin what the heck are they doing to these chickens in these big factories. (I don't consider them farms).

There is a farmers market tomorrow here in Florida and I am going to check it out.

I've never has a fresh fig, only the ones that come dried in the package.

How fun! I love the colored eggs - next year I really hope to have chickens. My garden is providing me with endless supply of tomatoes and cucumbers right now

Pinecone Camp said...

Yup. Warm figs right off the tree, are the best! Looks like we had a similar dinner last night (minus figs!);)
What's new in our garden? heaps of tomatoes, hot peppers.

Figs! Yummy! Carla

Beautiful figs.... and eggs!!! :)

I had to laugh at your question, because you know what is new in my garden? Little balls of cucumbers. I'm afraid that I planted them a little too close together.... my husband says that he's never heard of cucumber balls.... They actually look more like fat eggs.... oh, well, there is always next year...

Enjoy those lovely figs!


xox,
Blair

Figs right off the tree is my favourite part of visiting my relatives in Italy. We also had persimmons and pomegranates, grapes, and tomato salad every night. I just bought a box of figs at Superstore, not the same but that is all I can do right now. Our garden is loaded with tomatoes and beans.

Our garden has slowed down some but we are getting beautiful zukkini, cucumber and tomatoes. I miss the green beans and tomillo tomatoes. Our chickens are laying some amazing eggs. They started off pretty small but some now make it hard to close the egg carton... No blue eggs as of yet..
Razmatz: We have orgic eggs and treat our girls like family. They have been giving us several double yolks. I dont know why it happens but they are sooo good.

Maja said...

They look so fresh and still warm from the sun. Enjoy your meal!

So you mean I don't even have to bring you some because you have your own tree?! And here I thought I have a good excuse to go to your farm even if it's closed. LOL.

My tree is packed too and I ate one fruit out of the 126,854 fruits it has. The other night I saw a raccoon shaking the whole tree. Scared the heck out of me.

We've been giving the fruits away to family friends. Pretty good considering it's like $5 for 3-4 pieces at some produce.
