Nice.  I wish I could be there.  How was the taste of Beall, Negronne and Tilbury's Turkey?  Is Beall as good as twe had last week?  What's the story about Tilbury's Turkey?

Scott, I picked up 2 Beall and about 20 DK figs, from Michael Dolan From 'BurntRidge Nursery' at the Olympia Farmers Market. Both of the Beall's that I picked up ,were larger and much sweeter than the one that you and I sampled on Monday.
KiwiBob's friend . For the life of me I can't remember his name . The one who brought the DK and Lattarula on Monday . He brought DK ,Lattarula and Negronne. His Negronne were 4x the size of KiwiBob's. They were pleasantly sweet, with a nice strawberry jam type flavor.

There were only 2 Tilbury's turkey. They were on the small side.  But the flavor was outstanding, kind of  like a raspberry with a hint of lime .

While I was learning about detecting fetal neural tube defects and cardiac anomalies in the first trimester, you all were eating figs without me :(

Glad you guys had fun.
