Fig harvest
Random Thoughts

Five Things Friday

The five little things that made my week…

1. The figs are coming in fast and furious. I see fig and burrata salad, prosciutto-wrapped figs, roasted fig pizza, balsamic fig jam, spiced fig jam, and just plain juicy fresh figs in my immediate future.

Fig beetles

2. Most people will see this and feel discouraged. I, on the other hand, see it as a small sacrifice of a fig to have an afternoon’s worth of activity time and high-protein snacks for my chickens!

King of Siberia tomato

3. This beautiful ball of sunshine weighed in at a pound-and-a-half. (It’s a Golden King of Siberia.)

Dragon Tongue bush beans

4. I don’t repeat a lot of plants year after year, but Dragon Tongue bush beans are a staple in my summer vegetable garden.

Lemon harvest

5. Lemons find their way into a lot of things in my kitchen, but this weekend a few of those will be sliced and frozen for flavoring water, and the rest will turn into strawberry lemonade!
