Finally Figs!

Despite losing all of its leaves a few weeks ago, our valiant little tree managed to ripen some figs.  We picked them this morning.  Since we have never before tasted fresh figs, we were a little nervous about sampling them.  Fear, however, was unnecessary.  The little fruits were very mild with a slightly sweet, grape-like flavor.  I still have no idea why the tree lost its leaves, but I am grateful that they are growing back.  We definitely need more figs!
