Sweet as Honey
These were first two figs of the season from our back yard fig tree. We picked these last week. It was the first of many. Tonight, I picked a whole bowl full and there are lots more on the tree. They're so sweet and delicious! They almost taste like honey was drizzled inside.
Last year the ants were getting into them so badly that we hardly had any for ourselves. I heard that coffee grounds spread around the base of a plant can keep the ants away. I decided to give it a try and, so far, it seems to be working. Yay! I think I'm going to start spreading coffee grounds around my roses and other plants too!
