We've been cutting open ripe figs from our tree, but the fruit has little taste, no sweetness and way too much rind. We've resorted to buying purple figs from the farmers market. They're like candy.
It turns out we bought the wrong type of fig tree. We had no idea there were figs that tasted bad. It looks like we might have to get another fig tree.
A storm that rolled through knocked both my healthy tomatillo plants over and broke them. It's not a great loss, as neither had managed to fruit at all.
Our first green beans!
