Phil Your Glass: Celebrating the arrival of fresh figs

I could understand Eve conceding had the evil serpent tempted her with a fresh fig. Fresh figs are one of my favorite fruits. They bring back so many fond memories. As a first grader, I remember helping my father bury the family fig tree to protect it from the chilly Northeast Ohio winter at our home on Burns Avenue in Akron. And good friend Nick Alexander would always have a handful of fresh figs to sample from one of his 19 backyard trees. I swear his North Hill backyard had a mini Mediterranean micro climate. Nick had a green thumb and a heart twice the size of the Jolly Green Giant.

Participants were divided into age groups to compete for prizes that included such items as fishing equipment and bicycles.
