Fruits of fig trees are fruits, similar in basic structure to fruits of pineapple and mulberry. Multiple fruits have dozens of flowers produced in a cluster at the end of a fleshy stem. Each flower produces fruit that expands, growing into each other, as they get larger.
The fruit is also eaten green and used in many Thai recipes. Seed from Nam Doc Mai result in seedlings that produce fruit true to parent in five years. Grafting onto rootstock brings fruit to the table in one to two years. We done quite a few overnight trips on the Jacks Fork, but this one was special because it was the first overnight float trip for my niece (Celia) and nephew (Silas). They been floating with us for a couple years now, but never camped out overnight on the gravel bar. We decided on the Jacks Fork because we had not been there yet this year, it a nice trip and my sister had not been floating down there since we were kids.

Look at the ash and smell the smoke. If the material was cellulose (rayon), the ash should be soft and chalky, and the smell should be like burning paper (most paper is made of cellulose). If the sample is real silk, the burning sample should ball to a black, crispy ash, and the smell should be of burning hair (you’re burning protein, the same stuff your hair is made of).
In mid afternoon, I watched from our bow window as six deer picked their way carefully up our road, occasionally sliding on the ice, and then continued on Guesthouse Trail to the ridgetop. Ten minutes later, two more deer came from the direction of the powerline right of way along the flat area below our house and fought over an abundance of apple tree sprouts. The smaller deer deferred to the larger and tried to graze on our one multiflora rosebush that provides cover for the smaller, feeder birds.
Buck was a lifelong farmer and a United States Army veteran.
