In celebration of the first ripe fig from the garden, I made this fruit platter.
If you only knew how hard or how many times I’ve tried growing figs, you wouldn’t be so quick to think this is silliness.
This is fig tree number five. The first four? All croaked.
This one looks pretty pathetic as well. Has actually lost almost all of its leaves. But lo and behold, one ripe fig hung on.
Therefore, a celebration! With a fruit fiesta!
That, by the way, turned out to be the best way to get your non-fruit-loving husband and son to show interest in eating fruits.
All in all, not a bad idea.
