Here Figgy, Figgy!

Guess what's ready for harvesting?

FIGS from my fig tree :)

They're super ripe and juicy, which means it's time to set up the ladder and start picking; Johnny Appleseed Style...

They warn you "Never sit on a ladder..."

R.I.P. Johnny Appleseed

Okay, jokes aside... look at my nice bag full of FIGS

Question: Can you guess what i'm
going to be baking with my figs?

Looks like someone had some fun picking figs this morning! I say MUFFINS!

Missy said... [reply]

The pictures look like drunken fig-picking. You should always have a designated picker. LOL.

I can't wait to see what you will make. I am sure it will be intoxicating and inebriating...in a wholesome and delicious way!

Figgy pudding?

LOL - I have no idea. I don't even know what figgy pudding is :-)

Monique said... [reply]

Super jealous that you can go picking food off a tree in your yard...never had a fig before!

Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin said... [reply]

Woah those look AMAZING! I've never in my life tried a fresh fig... I am intrigued!

Oh, gonna second it - muffins!

I love figs. In Israel I lived near a fig tree for a while, but it wasn't the right season, so I never got to reap the benefit. I wonder if I could grow on in Massachusetts...

No WAY!! I am so jealous. I've never had a fresh fig - but am a HUGE fan of the dried variation ;) I saw the fresh ones pop up once in my grocery store - but couldn't splurge on them at the time. Go figure, I've never seen them since!! I can't wait to see what they become :)

Crystal said... [reply]

Oh my gosh I LOVE the pictures! haha. They may have made me laugh a little bit. The only time I have ever had figs was in the fig newton bars, does that count?? You should make some fig bars!

Oh wow, you're just too adorable girl, seriously!! Looooove your tan-so envious right now! I guess I would bake some scrumptious figgy PB banana bread, as I don't really care for fresh figs-but maybe the ones I had were not really ripe?? I bet u come up with something fab!! Lots of <3 xoxo Mel

Aaaack! You have a fig tree? JEALOUS! Those look beautiful! Glad your fall was a joke :-D. I'mma guessing fig jam? Have a great day, dear. And have fun with those figs.

just had figs last night! mine were from the market though not a tree ;p my guess is fig tart or figgy pudding?

Tod said... [reply]

Well if you’re not going to eat them Raw or Dried out… you’re going to make the famous Fig Newton or create a delicious Jam.

Kelsey Ann said... [reply]

Megan D said... [reply]

You are too funny! And I LOVE that you have a fig tree in your yard. I tried my first real fig last weekend at the farmer's market and loved it! You should make some yummy figgy energy bars =D

Laury@TheFitnessDish said... [reply]

You are the CUTEST!! I love your little summer dress, and your Johnny Appleseed plot ;-)

I have NO idea what you'll be making, but I am excited to see because I have never baked with figs before!!!

Those figs are so cute, I want a fig tree!

I love your summer dress/nightgown (?) -- you look so innocent, just picking the figs.

A fig tart?

Monet said... [reply]

You are so stunning! Even with your face flat on the ground. I am hoping for some fig newtons!

Jos said... [reply]

Hmm I've never tried fig before so can't really think of what you can make. LOL at those pic jokes. :P But glad you actually didn't fall flat like that.

Anonymous said... [reply]

LUCKY!! I've only ever eaten dried figs (which I absolutely adore and would attack someone just to get my hands on them) but I've always wanted to try figs that AREN'T dried. Do they taste a whole lot different?

PS. You're adorable. :)

Jess @ MTL Veggie said... [reply]

LOL you are too cute! I am so jealous that you have a fig-tree, that is awesome! Very intrigued to learn what you're going to make with them.

Madeline - Greens and Jeans said... [reply]

Haha, I have to agree with the person who said it looked like there was some drunken fig picking going on...

Jackie (Peaces of Earth) said... [reply]

hehehe you are so silly!! I love fresh figs!!! I usually eat way too many of them, then my tongue itches all day. I'm excited to see what you're making! Figs with balsamic? Fig newtons?

Sarah @ Gluten-free tries Vegan said... [reply]

I've never tried fresh figs, what do they taste like? Looking forward to seeing what you make with them :)

Anonymous said... [reply]
