Cookie, you know, I just might do that! If I can find one around here...I'm sure they've got to have them seeowhmre...Julie, Thank you! I hope your co-worker comes through for you, you lucky lady!Christie, You are a woman after my own heart. I know what I'll be doing with my next batch now - that sounds fabulous!Poppy, nice to meet you too! Sounds like you've lived in some very nice places! I love the Big Island, and I dream of Italy (or Europe? I'll have to go check out your blog!) Thanks for stopping by mine!Ann, me too!!Ilva, I will make it there one day! I'm determined. Wish I could have taken that tree off your hands. I have to say that I never felt sick from figs - not like I have after eating bushes worth of raspberries ;)Zoomie, yeah, I never really thought about figs being here. Now I've heard so many people have trees I"m going to have to get my own or make new friends!!Deb, thanks! I didn't know either until I got the tip - probably because they were always long gone before we got our lazy butts all the way to town!
