an old fig tree

the most prized feature of the house is the mature fig tree in the backyard. it produces figs like crazy. i easily harvested 10 pounds of figs today. to keep up with the harvest i bought a bunch of canning jars and the first batch of fig jam is bubbling in a big pot on the stove. yum. there are also a young lemon and a semi-mature orange tree. they look and smell nice but their production qualities are yet to be determined. the 3 trees form a good base for starting an urban farm.
