Picking Figs

Picking figs
At the foot of a hilltop village, typical in Provence, fields of fig trees are bursting with ripe fruit.
This is the long awaited moment for gathering figs, delicious in jam or fresh, accompanied by a good pélardon !

What will you make with them? is there such a thing as fig jam? Or cookie filling? Here in the US we have a commercial cookie called "fig bars". They're wonderfully sweet!
I don't think I've ever seen a live fig tree. They're beautiful!
I love your outfit!

Oh such luck, to be able to gather so many lovely figs. -Du you have figs in your own garden? I like your apron, wonderful color.

I love these images of you dressed so beautifully for harvesting such amazing figs!

I have two tiny trees just planted a couple years ago - a few small figs are ripening now and I hope to gather them before the birds and squirrels eat them!

My favorite way to eat them is to bake them with acacia honey and serve with mascarpone cheese! Also LOVE fig jam and will buy some figs from the market to make my own.

Thank you for always sharing so much beauty - Provence is my favorite place to visit.

What lovely colors--and wow, those figs look glorious! I can only dream of such things as I sit here at my desk staring out at a cold, windy, wet day here in Sydney!

Those figs look delicious! So huge too!! My little fig tree is struggling along, but hopefully next year it will be better. I love the photo of the hat with the figs!
Take Care,
