Years ago I planted a six inch fig seedling next to the chicken coop. I didn’t water it or really do anything other than ignore it. In return the tree rewards us (and about 300 birds) with around 100 lbs of delicious figs each August. The birds and us can’t eat them all fresh so we like to pick a bunch and dry them for cooking later. My wife uses them in pies and a variety of dishes all winter long.
