My Fig Tree is Back!
I was really hoping I didn't lose this beautiful tree over this past winter. But because it did not get very cold (we only had a couple of light freezes, even here in the hills), and I winterized the tree very well, I was pretty sure it would come back, and sure enough it did!
So this past weekend, I got out there cleaned it out, pruned it up, added some compost and organic fertilizer and watered it real well. It looks great and I'm very happy! Last year, I got about 10 small figs from this tree. This year, I hope to get the same amount and maybe more. Even though we are leaving for the summer, I plan to keep a steady drip of water on it all summer long. That's what I did last year and it was the best thing for this tree. Isn't it beautiful? :)
I love seeing new growth like this on my plants and trees :)
