Frank, I can't blame you for passing on growing figs!!! That's a bit labor intensive for my likes!!! The Greek fellow must *really* like figs!!!!!
I was over at a friend's house the other day. He has a LARGE fig tree. It got hit by the freeze/frost the same time that my smaller tree got hit. His is now loaded with half-grown figs but mine is bare of figs. I guess mine must of gotten hit harder than his, or his older tree just was more resilient than my smaller, younger tree.
