Thumb Plant Status Notes Events
picked from a potted fig tree Fig (Ficus carica 'Brown Turkey')
January 8, 2018: Maintenance performed (This fig tree is a very old one planted probably 30 years ago. The tree has always produced delicious figs, but last years crop was very small. On the 23rd of December, I removed a heavy overgrowth of honeysuckle and devils claw vines from the tree. I also cut the tree back to approx 5' in height and thinned out all old growth. On Jan. 3rd, 2018 my area had an unprecedented snow fall of 3.5 inches which has remained on the ground for rest of that week. (Usually, snow will come down and melt before noon on the same day.) The plant looks good and is still dormant, but we are expecting a warming trend. Last year the tree had broken dormancy a week or so before a late frost, so I'll be on the watch for that again this year.)
