Well, those of you who have been following this blog for a while know that I have been trying to grow fig trees in my back yard. the first year they ware just getting started..very small figs; not quite up for actually eating. Last year was a repeat of the same, so I was starting to wonder if they would ever take off. Every year they seem to grow tall, yield nothing and then die back. The ensuing spring requires them to start all over again at ground level.
This year has been no exception. While I did not cut back last years growth, this years new growth all started from ground level again...so I cut back the tall barren shoots leftover from last year, watered them like crazy and am hoping for the best.
I think this may be the year. See already I have a pretty good sized fig and it is only July 2! So, September should be quite abundant with figs! YES!
