One benefit of our extremely hot (and extremely early) summer season has been the fig harvest.  This year was a bumper crop for figs, and we've been enjoying the evening ritual of eating fresh figs off of the tree during farm chores.  Now, at the end of July, we are almost done with the first fig harvest.  Each year, the fig trees produce a second crop of tiny green fruit, which never have a chance to ripen before October's frosts.  This year, with the season being roughly 10-14 days early, we might be able to squeeze in a second fig crop!  Fingers are crossed...
