Bounty of the land
We're in luck lately, what's with goodies out of the back yard. About a hundred years ago, **Adrift was touted as the next Fig Capital of the World. You could buy a lot in town and get five acres outside of town to grow your figgy fortune. The idea gained less traction than a developer might wish, but figs still grow great here. The lots and plots sold have grown some tangled titles that sometimes jump up and make problems even now. We're so awash in figs that we can't eat them fast enough ... no doubt I'll derange my digestion by eating too many, but they are sweet and ripe. If you lived closer, I'd give you a bowl of figs or tomatoes to take home.
