    Beautiful! I need to do something more like that this year. On mine, nothing really touches (it's how I fix my own plates!) but they look beautiful when they're so full.
    Yeah, but what do they look like after the line goes through, hahaha!
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    I just got a text from my daughter who I had sent that photo to earlier and she said, "Everything is too close together...don't put the meat next to the cheese, yuk."

    Maybe buy a small quantity to taste before committing. I adore dried figs. Fresh, not so much. They have a weird texture and, to me, taste nothing like dried. However, if you've only ever tried the dried calimyrna figs (the tan ones), I recommend trying dried mission (black) figs. A whole different experience.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I agree. We have friends who have a small fig farm in California and have gotten fresh figs Fed Ex'd from them from time to time. The texture is.....different. Slimy is the kindest thing I can say.

    I turn them into jam and it's easy enough.

    I thought this was about garage bands.

    "Charcuterie Board presents: FIG JAM 2019 at the Humboldt County Community Center! Tickets $19.95 and include all of the cheese you can eat!"
    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.
