Ever seen a fresh fig?

From a tree in our backyard:

We picked a few yesterday, and there are lots more ripening on the branches. If you've never had a fresh fig before, I highly suggest it. It's the most damned delicious fruit I've ever tasted... ever

Mom and I also took a trip to the farmer's market yesterday, and along with some corn, okra, green beans, peaches and a disc of fresh Crottin cheese from the local Goat Lady Dairy Farm, we scored some gorgeous heirloom tomatoes:

A bunch of German Johnson and a couple of the same in a black variety (the one on top). You haven't had a tomato until you've had a black German Johnson.

Holy shit. I'm in fresh fruit heaven.
