This is the first year in many, many that our tree has produced figs. It’s also the first that it wintered over next to the house, in the same sandy bed with rosemary and jasmine. I figured like with like, right? Seems to have worked.
My husband, Greg, and I are co-founders of SCF, which chronicles what we eat, drink and grow as we raise our daughter on a tiny plot of land in the Lower Hudson Valley.
