Figs vs. Deer and Birds?
First year fig grower here. I have 3 figs trees in containers and two plants have figs on them. I'm starting to worry about some nasty beast getting my figs before I do.
I can move the pots inside a fenced in area to protect them from deer so I should be ok there, but what about birds? Do they eat figs? They just about ruined my plum harvest. Should I cover the figs with with netting to protect them? Is that necessary?
Also, are there any other critters that I should worry about? Squirrels? Raccons? And back to my first question, do I need to move them inside the fenced in area to protect them from deer?
