So glad you left a comment on my blog so I could find you! Your bio alone would make me follow you LOL. My husband grew up in northern California where they grew figs as well as countless other fruit. The joys of living in a warmer climate!
I have wonderful memories of eating figs from my grandfather’s tree when I was growing up and want to grow them again. But I don’t know enough about them, and it’s not the right season for me yet (it’s Autumn). So I’ll learn about them through winter and maybe come Spring, I’ll be able to take action.
Good luck with your plant selection.
P.S. no idea what variety my grandfather grew, but there was also no coddling for that tree.
I was glad to meet you too, Karen! It’s nice to befriend another writer. Thanks for leaving a comment (and I sent you a friend request via FB). Isn’t the A to Z challenge great? I am meeting so many neat bloggers!
