Garden Update: Figs

This was my largest single harvest of figs this year.  Ten.  
Not many figs this year, but at least they were tasty.  We ate them fresh with a little goat cheese and balsamic vinegar and a glass of white wine.


  1. Beautiful blog!

    Your figs look delicious! Are they Brown Turkeys? I would love to have a fig farm, too. Unfortunately, my little container-grown fig died during the harsh winter of '09. :(

  2. Yes, I think they are Brown Turkeys, but I'm not 100% sure because I dug up a runner off a big tree that was owned by an acquaintance, and they didn't remember what kind it was. I have another type of fig that was in my yard when I moved in and never fruited because it wasn't hardy enough and died back to ground level every winter. I bring the plant inside each winter, and even though it goes dormant and looks ugly, it's gotten big enough that it has started to fruit. I don't know what variety it is-- bigger green fruits.

  3. Wow - I can't imagine being able to grow my own figs...although come to think of it we could grow figs in Vancouver.
