Table Talk » Figlets!

Around the time I bought my AeroGarden, I also ordered a dwarf fig tree from Wayside Gardens. Fig trees aren't hardy in my zone 5 garden, but I plan to plant it in a container and overwinter it in our heated garage. I have no idea if this will work, but we love figs, so I decided to give it a try. My fig tree arrived the first week of May and looked like a two foot tall stick. But after a few days out on our 3-season porch, it developed lots of buds, which have turned into branches and leaves. And now it has two tiny figlets! This variety of fig produces two crops, one in July and one in September. It also attracts bird, which love to nibble on the figs, but I don't plan to share my figs with the birds. I might have to net it to keep the birds away.

Lisa, my AeroGarden is growing like crazy. I'll post an update on it in the next few days so you can see it.
