We’d been talking about this for a bit, but finally this year we went and bought a fig tree. It’s new home is in a large pot on the patio at the beach. Jim’s grandmother has visions of bringing it to her year round home for the winter. Although the rest of us are in agreement that it just needs a sheltered spot near the house and will do just fine when summer ends.
When we brought it home there was just one lonely fig on the trunk, but since then it’s grown about a foot and now there are at least 14 of those tasty little nuggets on the tree. I’ve never tried to grow one of these, but am hoping we’re successful. With it growing in a pot, the top concern is ample water. So far, so good, but the summer is young and the temperature is already sky rocketing.
