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