My breakfast the past week has been about three fat figs gathered from my
trees and prickly pear fruit. These are very tasty and the simplist way to eat
them is to simply take them off the cactus with prongs, hold them with a fork
and slice them in half. I then just scoop out the centers with a spoon. The seedy
part tastes a bit like pomegranate and the green inner part tastes a bit like
honeydew melon. My chickens love them too so I cut some in half for them and
give them all the figs that aren't perfect or have ants in them. It's pleasant
eating from your own land, the plants and trees you've planted and tended
are now givng back. It's like dividends from stocks you own. Trees are a
wonderful investment as are other useful plants.
