I love figs. For quite a few years my fig tree produced a lot of fruit and I was able to make fig preserves each summer. Now the Bald Cypress trees are shading the tree and it is not as productive.
But when the season arrives I always get excited watching them grow. My dogs, one a beagle, one a lab both love to eat the figs off the lower branches. The beagle eats most anything but it surprises me that that dogs would like fruit.
I felt inspired to hook a fig this year. It was a fun subject.
