It's a Fig!

A while back I wrote about my new baby - a fig tree. When I bought it, I was told it wouldn't produce figs this year but next year for sure. Needless to say I was pretty excited when one, little oddly-shaped fig appeared. Then another perfectly shaped lovely - I was over the moon. 

This week they ripened into beautiful, soft, rosy fruits. How lucky!



Once plucked from the tree I prepared them my favorite way. Cut in half, topped with my homemade, fresh goat cheese.

 

I added a golden drizzle of local honey then popped them into an awaiting mouth.

Delicious and leaving me anxiously awaiting next years (hopefully) bountiful harvest!

Thanks for reading! I, too have 5 chickens but only 1 Auracana of questionable lineage!

Well if you ever want more... lol

I've heard that keeping chickens can be addictive. I know I've just fallen in love with every aspect of them.

I'm thinking of doing some posts about the flock - but I'm still deciding on how I want to introduce them. There is so much information about chicken life that I'm just unsure of where to start.

Looking forward to your next post!
