Life Is Full Of Hidden Treasures

Life is full of hidden treasures. Figs are actually inside-out flowers, not the fruit of the tree. Sometimes fresh figs contain lots of life, ants, tiny flies (pollinators).
Our garden has lots of figs this season. Figs thrive on heavy clay soils with good mulch to hold moisture. Green figs are great because the birds don’t all know that they ripen green.
