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!
