This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

fig tree brought into sunlight

fig tree 027 I remembered my small fig tree up in the attic today and brought it down into the sunlight. It had already broken dormancy and leaves were coming out. Still a bit chilly, so I'll leave it on the porch a while before it goes out in the yard. I suppose it will need a bigger pot this year.

I have been thinking about fig trees, really just due to my fig obsession -but wasn't sure how it would work out on our roof. I'm going to watch the progress here- thanks for sharing.
