Here’s the bounty from the garden fig tree this year:
Granted, it’s not from the generous old tree we had for fifteen years, the one that didn’t make it through a transplant followed by a harsh cold snap a couple of years ago.
The fig newbie managed a decent harvest last year; probably the long heatwave and lack of water are to blame for this season’s fig dearth.
There are a few little fig buds that tried to grow once the weather cooled in September, but it’s a case of too little water, too late.
Better luck next year.
