Owl is on the Job!

The figs on our Black Mission fig tree have been ripening nicely. When I studied the tree closely this morning, I saw several ripe figs, with more on the way. I had to get our stepstool to reach the highest ones. By the time I finished picking, I had six ripe figs in my basket to join the two figs I picked yesterday. We enjoyed two of them for lunch. Owl has been doing his job well! If you look carefully, you can see a ripe fig above and to the right of the owl’s head. There are also quite a few green figs in the picture, but they are hard to see because they’re the same color as the leaves. The plate of ripe figs shows a plentiful harvest already. With two or three dozen more figs still coming along, it looks like we’re in for many a summer treat!
