Hi all, hope everyone is doing well. Been very very busy, and just have not had time to sit down and blog too much....Been doing the market almost every Saturday, plus i work a full-time job during the week....i must be crazy! LOL! It's raining in Marietta, GA today which gives me a chance to catch up on a lot of inside stuff....including sitting down and talking to everyone! Figs are coming in, my neighbor lets me snitch gallons....they don't eat too many of them....so i made Fresh Fig Cookies....yum! I had to make more, because i could not stop eating them as i was baking them...LOL....anyhow those went over really well yesterday at market!! Gonna try for fig cake this week, and apple cake too, a friend of mine has two apple trees and has given me some of the bounty! Anybody got a good recipe they'd like to share for either one of those? (fig or apple cake) I know i can find one online or in one of my many cookbooks....just thought someone might have an out of this world recipe! Email me if you do, or post it here.
I hope everyone is having a fabulous 2009 gardening season....i finally have a few good veggie plants going....my soil is not the best, due to the pecan trees, and i have to constantly amend....i think i finally amended enough this time...LOL. Well on to other things.....oh FYI all locals: The Marietta City Council recently voted to extend the Marietta Square farmer's market through December! Wowee!

Oh, please put your fig cookie receipe on the receipe forum. My neighbor lets me raid his fruit trees. I've made both fig jam, fig/strawberry jam, both with sugar or with splenda. I share with friends.I'm a diabetic & have a friend who is a diabetic. So she's getting treats too. Taking the grands swimming, then we are picking figs again.Apples, then pears is next.I have muskadines. So I'm jamming till the fall. Take care, Diane
