fig season in Georgia

We got some figs in our CSA this week--and I couldn't get my friends to eat them! Have you had fresh figs before? They're quite delicious. Because mine were so ripe, I ate a bunch, then sliced and froze the rest for smoothies. Here are some cool fig pictures that I didn't take (still haven't gotten a new camera)

You know, there is a fig tree where I walk at lunch. I'll see if I can upload a nice blurry cameraphone pic after lunch.

We adore figs...we eat them with goat cheese.

Like Michelle ann, I have had them with goat cheese on some crusty bread...yum!

I tried to join a CSA when we moved here a few weeks ago. But it was too late in the season, they only go until Aug.

your friends did not want fresh figs? what kind of friends are these? :)

I like figs with brie and a baguette
