Staten Island 2nd annual fig festival
Thursday Sept. 15 will be the second annual Staten Island fig festival. Last year from 50-100 people showed up with various figs and dishes. There are no formal speeches or lectures, just locals bringing their figs. I attended last year and stuffed my face. For more information go to silive.com. I know for a fact that there will be a former employee of Belleclare nursery there with a few interesting cultivars. Hope to see you there.
