    As the rampaging squirrel in our yard alerted us, it’s fig season in California! We rescued our first two (varietal: Brown Turkey, which is pretty much what they look like when ripe) from his furry grasp yesterday, and I’m pondering whether to stuff them with goat cheese and honey, or wrap them up in bacon and broil them. As I ponder this, they’ll probably just get eaten. Hopefully, there are many more to come.

    If you aren’t lucky enough to have a fig tree yet (but ARE lucky enough to live in Southern California), head over to the the Huntington Library to learn how to get started growing your own fig supply. It will up your popularity, among man and rodent alike…
