Figs Ahoy!

Rather than whinge on about the 34th snowstorm to come knocking on our door since January (sarcasm, yes, but only just a little- we did get another 6 inches over the weekend), I’d rather show you the most hopeful things in the house right now.

Bebe Figs!

(Please start watching Schitt’s Creek if you aren’t already. I apologize in advance if it isn’t your sort of thing, but it is so very much my sort of thing that I have to shout it from the rooftops so that everyone can bask in the laughter and ridiculousness.)

In any event, I am (as always) thrilled to pieces when this never-say-die Fig sets fruit for us. Last count there were 14 bebes on the tree and I’m as proud as can be.

I’ve been keeping it in the sunniest spot in the dining room and its been getting regular feedings (like every 5 weeks) of comfrey tea (leftover from this summer). It needs a potting up, but I’m always hesitant to do that once the fruit has set, so that will likely be a late-summer project just before it comes back into the house.

In any event, while I wait for all this snow to melt, I’m going to daydream about sun-warmed ripe figs. Delicious!

  1. Always good to have something luscious to focus on during the bleak spells, and your figs certainly look promising. I just picked a lemon from my tree in the basement, and am enjoying the amaryllis and hibiscus blooms until those crocus finally show up.

    1. They are about 50/50 and their inside time is always the hardest. I’ve been luck with the spider mites and wooly aphids this year, so that helps. Everything gets much easier when it gets warm enough to chuck them outside! You should absolutely try one!
