Like Randal, my favorite Biblical plant is the date. Just thinking about them makes my mouth yearn to taste it’s sweetness. The picture Randal posted reminds me of a date palm that was right outside the apartment door when we lived in Phoenix, AZ. What a way to feast on fresh dates. Just step outside and pick a few. A family we know in Yuma comes here every year around Christmas time to visit his mother and brings us some dates because he knows I love them. I get a few before my wife takes them away and puts them in the freezer for use in baking. Figs are ok. I like them also, especially in Newtons, :).
