One of the things I have missed most (besides my family and friends, of course!) about Arizona is my garden & fruit trees. I was so excited to see actual fruit on my trees this year, and we were taken away before getting to taste it! I even had blackberries ready to ripen on the vine. God was so good to give us a house here in TX with fruit trees. Granted, they are two fruits I have never eaten in my life (figs and persimmons), but they are fruit trees, none the less. (Ok, I have eaten figs--in newtons. lol) But, I still missed the fun of picking all the ripe tomatoes our of our garden.
