The final fig

Our figs are like most of the figs in the yards around here: green on the outside and pinky-brown on the inside. We had just one remaining and we found it yesterday morning with big jagged bite marks but only half consumed. By yesterday evening, it was gone entirely. These figs are great favorites of squirrels, raccoons, opossums, and blue jays. A neighbor used to try to beat the creatures to them, planning to make fig preserves. Rarely did she succeed.
