As if solar panels weren’t enough. The day after the solar PV system was completed we picked our first harvest of homegrown figs.
Well, I call them ‘homegrown’ but that term implies that the people in my home did something to grow them. But that’s just not true. All we did is wait and watch to see when the fig tree in our front yard would produce some fruit. Then, once we saw the birds and squirrels chowing down we figured it was time to pick.
So happens we were having a family reunion right when the figs ripened so I had plenty of help from my nieces, nephews and cousins’ children (are they second cousins or cousins once removed?). And fortunately our friend and neighbor Richard was home who came right over with his ladder.
Andrea introduces us to the acronym FIGJAM – Fuck I’m Good, Just Ask Me.
Next year around this time I’ll have honey from my own hive to add to the fig harvest. Can’t wait.
