What time of day and at what stage of ripeness do you pick figs? When they start changing color? After their color is dark red lookin'? Or When? How often during the day do you check 'em? Most years, if we don't pick 'em before they get very soft the durned birds'll get 'em. One left last night "to get good'n ripe over night" was just a shell at my next "pick." If someone(?) gets up early enough we should have about 15 or 20 nice ones before the mockin' birds beat us to 'em.
