The figs are ripening, more every day, more than I can stuff in my mouth.......so I pulled out the dehydrator this afternoon and filled up 6 trays worth. There will probably be more figs ready in another day or two.....maybe I'll dry more, maybe make a fig cake, maybe pop more in my mouth - yum.
After the Biscuit Fire (500,000 acres) in 2002 the wine was especially good, something to do with the smoke holding the heat in at night and also giving the grapes a smoky flavor......wonder if that will happen to my figs.......
Countdown - 58 more days until rain (I'm giving you a break on the fire updates today, sticking my head in the sand today.....well, other than checking the updates online numerous times)
