Also shown here are 's miraculous figs that we picked from her very own fig tree. She planted the little tree three or so years ago, and it has done well but dies back every winter and none of its figs ever ripen. After all the rain we've had the past few weeks, those hard little green babies plumped up and turned purplish yellowish green. When we bit into them this afternoon at book club, we tasted the best figs ever.
