madts, I’d love those figs. Planted a fig tree a couple years ago that was supposed to be bred for my climate but it didn’t make it through the winter.

OldNovice – late August, early September we’ve got low bush blue huckleberries in the alpine country. They taste like sweet little apples. Blueberry pancakes on a chilly mountain morning are indescribably delicious. I throw a light weight frying pan in my backpack just for that purpose.

I wish we could grow peaches around here. Maybe climate change will have an upside. I remember visiting cousins in Phoenix years ago and picking a grapefruit for breakfast out of their front yard. The damn thing was as sweet as an orange. I thought that almost made living in that climate tolerable. Almost.

(Two more gallons today. My hands are looking like I’ve been wrestling cats.)
