  1. Where do you live that you are getting ripe figs??

    • Angie says:

      I’m in South Jersey area, near Philadelphia. But I think it was just a fluke. The fig tree did live inside my living room all throughout winter, lol.

      • Cool. I just bought a fig tree. It won’t produce this year, all the leaves dropped off (transit shock, I presume), but three leaflets have started as new growth. Mine will overwinter indoors, as well.

  2. That platter looks absolutely gorgeous πŸ™‚

  3. What a beautiful little fig. To bad you killed it!! :)) I know time flies when we get older but wow I missed a whole week of Fiesta Friday #172. Your salad looks awesome except for the poor little fig! Happy FF!

  4. Hi Angie! Congrats on your fig!! I wish I had a garden to grow my own fruits and vegetables.
    Btw, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this fiesta #172??

    I feel your joy Angie!! I will celebrate the birth of fig with you! When my plants get sick, I feel sad.. when they die, I feel horrible! When my jasmine plant flowered and filled the house with it’s pleasant fragrance, I was overjoyed. So, yes, I feel you. You have good reason to celebrate!! Love all the features! Looking forward to co-hosting with my dear friend Jhuls and you and tasting all the goodies our friends bring in!

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Su! I knew someone over here would understand me πŸ˜„ Nobody at home does, of course. And thanks for cohosting! I hope this weekend I can have some free time to mingle with y’all! 😘

    That fruit salad looks gorgeous! You must be a very determined gardener to try to grow figs in New York, the climate over there is not exactly Mediterranean πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I guess I’m a stubborn gardener πŸ˜‚ My sister lives in California and you should see the way she treats, or should I say mistreats, figs! She also has olive trees! Some people have all the luck! πŸ˜‚

      • Monika says:

        I guess it’s easy to take things for granted when they are so readily available. I am a very bad gardener, have little understanding of it but I am trying to get better and so far most of my herbs are doing ok this year:)

    Hi Angie! Your fruit platter looks so good! Really inviting πŸ˜€ I’ll pray for that one fig in your tree πŸ˜‰
    I’m so flattered that I got to be on the features two weeks in a row πŸ˜€ thank you thank you thank you ^^ Happy Fiesta!

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Sarah! Two weeks in a row?! I didn’t even realize. That just proves how awesome you are and how much we love you 😘

  8. Your fruit salad is absolutely gorgeous!! Lucky you having fresh figs. Love them!! The features as always are drool worthy. Happy FF Angie and hope you have an awesome weekend.

    • Angie says:

      Thanks! I love figs, too. And fresh ones are hard to come by. When I see them on sale, I usually hoard them πŸ˜„ Have a wonderful weekend, Suzanne. Hopefully the heat moves away from the area. Sticky today!

  9. Mikaela says:

    What a beautiful fruit platter! I’m in Central PA, wish I could grow figs!

  10. I have 2 fig trees in pots on the deck. In past years some animal gets to them just as they ripen. It is is disappointing as I love fresh figs. I’m hopeful they will fare better when moved to our second home, perhaps I can actually plant them in the ground. Anyway, gorgeous fruit platter! Happy Friday. It is almost summer, when do you start vacation?

  11. Jhuls says:

    Now, that is a beautiful fruit platter, Angie! And congrats on the fig tree number four. I am late, but I am so ready to parteeeyyyy!!! πŸ’ƒπŸ»

    • Fig number five, Jhuls! I’m happy I haven’t killed it. I’m becoming a Fig Nurturer, yay! Pls go tell Quinn! πŸ˜„ Thanks for cohosting! 😘😘

      • Jhuls says:

        Ahhh, the ‘four’ were the croaked ones. Very funny me!πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ Well, at least I didn’t say you killed it!😬 It’s my pleasure, Angie!πŸ’œ

  12. That fruit platter looks AH-MAZING!!! Thanks so much for hosting! Linked back to your party on my site! πŸ™‚

  13. Such beautiful fruit, and a perfect little fig πŸ’š

  14. You have a fig tree! How cool!!! How many figs has the fig tree figged! Lol. Love your fruit platter, Angie!

  15. Gorgeous!!! No such luck on my fig tree just south of you. πŸ™

  16. Ginger says:

    Summer has definitely sprung in your back yard! We have a few green alpine strawberries and a lot of unripe damsons which we hope will be spared from the birds … We have a half term break next week which makes me feel all summery, but as we’re heading north we won’t be packing any bikinis. Nor sun cream.

    • Angie says:

      It’s getting there, though it’s been cold and wet the last few days. Tell Mother Nature to make up her mind, please! Have fun on your trip! Maybe pack suncreen instead? I hear it’s a great prevention for wrinkles πŸ˜‚

    hi Angie
    What a brilliant fig! I have never had a fig tree. They are so plentiful here and I still didn’t manage to find a garden with a fig tree. One day! I love fruit platters, there aren’t enough of them around! πŸ™‚ I hope your week is good! x

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Petra! If your weather permits you to grow it outdoors, I’d definitely recommend it. It’s such a sculptural tree, decorative even when not in fruit. It’s been a good week, but tiring coz I finally tilled the tomato bed πŸ˜‚ It’s now ready for planting, yay!!

      • petra08 says:

        hello Angie
        we just bought some tomato plants today! The greenhouse is filled with chilies so we had to scale back a bit on tomatoes.
        Fig trees are beautiful and figs are so delicious! πŸ™‚ Have a great rest of the week!
