Fig Harvest

Gathering figs between storms. We have a very healthy fig tree that’s a fifth generation transplant. In about five minutes I collected a gallon of fruit from what was easily reachable. The out of reach goes to the squirrels & birds.

Figs are a good source of energy, protein, carbohydrates, fiber, water and sugar. They contain a high content of iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and potassium, vitamins A, E, and K. Figs may lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels & help manage diabetes. They help relieve constipation, reduce symptoms of Alzheimer's, promote bone health by reducing risk of osteoporosis & improve skin health. Figs are also rich in antioxidants, aid in weight loss & improve digestion.
