Figs Arrived!!

March 30, 2013

I mentioned in an earlier blog that this would be the year of the fig for me and so it’s happened.  I ordered 3 fig trees and a dwarf everbearing mulberry bush from a green house in CT and the plants arrived on Thursday looking beautiful and healthy.  They will wait in here (the kitchen) until more stable weather when they will be transplanted into larger pots and taken outside.  The mulberry will remain in a pot for its life.  As for the figs, I haven’t totally decided yet where their final destination is, whether it’ll be in the ground or in a pot.  Let me introduce you:

So, there you have it.   I’ll keep you updated on the progress.

Until next time,
