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 is leafing out

fig tree leaves IMG_0349
Last year I bought a little fig tree to replace my previous tree that died last winter. Last year, I left the tree outside - very stupid of me. This year, I planted the tree in a large planter inside. Back in October or November it dropped all of its leaves. I was worried it was dead, but it is leafing out now. I'll take that as a sign of spring, even though that is a giant pile of snow outside the window.

I am in IL, I bring mine in, it drops its leaves and they come back, and I even have some small green figs. Very forgiving plant

Wow, that sure is an accelerated growth cycle. Here, our native figs don't start sprouting until much later.
