Summer in May

 It is still May here -- though, to be fair, almost June -- and we already have summer weather. In the 90s every day, damp and sunny at the same time. It's like living in a swamp.

However! I had purchased a fig tree and it has figs on it. It seems to like this horrific weather.

I HATE it.

We have a fig tree that is a little older than DC1. I think it's the oldest plant we have that we planted and has actually survived. Maybe also the mint that won't die (though we thought it had died for a couple summers, it came back when we refreshed the soil). Fresh figs are awesome!

I love fresh figs, and I can usually only get them a couple times a summer, from this one store that carries local produce. But yes, they're wonderful.

Our fig tree fruits twice in the summer :)

Fingers crossed for mine to do that too!
