My next door neighbor has an envy-worthy fig tree. The leaves are are huge and the brightest hue of green. I often wish I knew how to make dolmas because then I’d put them to good use. Instead, he allows me to pick as many figs off the tree as my heart desires. His tree yields so much fruit that he has no idea what to do with it all. I always tell him not to worry because I have big plans for the figs.
