My First Lousy Fig Video

dieselerSeptember 17, 2010

Hi there,

look this is my very first video and dont ask me how i figured it out im still trying to figure how i actually figured it out !

I used my small camera i use always to take pictures to post and it has a video button on it too so i used it to see what happens and experimented , now i put on you tube.

Listen you gonna twist your neck as you watch video cause im just learning and maybe i get better and maybe not, and probably laugh at the way i talk but thats how i talk see.

Sorry for the sideways shots of plants i tried so go ahead have fun as you watch a sampling of a few of my first season fig plants.

Please dont expect much its not much at all thats it. This link better work.

Wife just came in and she watched oh gosh she goes , "have you listened to your video how entertaining are you ?" Then she was of course laughing when the camera went sideways when showing the plants.

Hey i tried you know.

Martin, I think you did a great job! A video is worth a million words on screen! I may do the same next year. Keep videoing and pretty soon you will be an expert! cheers, Dennis

Great job! I am amazed that most of the figs featured had the same leaf pattern. Did you notice that or is it just me?

Hey Martin!

I enjoyed your video debut a lot and loved hearing your Yankee accent. Gives me a dose of "Up Home" talk I need every so often to keep from getting homesick. I hope you will make more videos and maybe one with you singing to your fig trees. That would be great.

I am humbled. I still don't know how to use the digital camera nor how to post. Congratulations!
Loved the south Chicago accent. I grew up in a western suburb, Lombard.

Thanks for the comments.
EJP i did notice the similar leaf pattern in several of them.
None have produced figs that would have ripened , perhaps next season.
