A Lot of Figs

I went fig picking, Bens uncle Phil and Aunt Patti have lots of fig trees, not something people in the northern states are real familiar with. So when I talk to anyone from home I have to repeat myself multiple times and finally say you know like fig newtons. Figs are a delicious fruit full of fiber and potassium. Fresh figs with goat cheese and honey, yum! With this many figs I made my first jam, and canned for the first time. I have the filling and dough made for fig newtons just have to put them together and back them. Only about five more pounds to do something with and then I will have to go pick more. Don't want them to go to the birds :)
