The figs have started coming in at the house in Houston. I'm sure they are ripening at the other house, too, but WE DON'T LIVE THERE YET!!
I like figs just fine, but the real reason we harvest them it to make preserves for my father and father-in-law. They both just love them. Now I have learned that Lar's Aunt Sarah has a fondness for them as well. I pick what is ripe each day, let them sit out overnight to ripen, and then cut the tops and freeze them. When the harvest is over, I make preserves. Yummy!
