The very warm days recently have made the figs in my yard ripen faster than normal. I can’t eat them fast enough and they are dropping from the tree like mushy grenades.
I never knew I liked figs until I moved here and started eating them fresh off the tree, I just knew I hated Fig Newtons. If you think you hate figs because you hate Fig Newtons, believe me, they are not even close to being the same.
When I was in my yard, trying to salvage some of the very ripe figs, I found this little guy hanging out in my rosemary bush.
Update: Found this awesome video of one thing these pretty little things eat. Warning: if you don’t like profanity and cannibalism, maybe skip this video…
