Sounds like a nice day with fellow fig lovers. Wish I was available. I need to learn a lot more since I'm new to the fig obsession.


RE: Fig meeting in the Northeast April 25th

I would like to buy a very hardy fig tree that would not need to be wrapped. I have seen some green figs that thrive in central NJ without wrapping in winter. i plan to plant it next to my house in a sheltered area shielded by the garage. I have a Brown turkey that I wrap. My friend has never wrapped hers with great results. I will come to the meeting

There's rain in the forcast for tomorrow, but there's a building where we can stay in that case.

If you have something you can spare, we will have a table to set that material, We will have a drawing later. I will try and remember to bring some empty pots for, along with some fig trees for the drawing and for sale.

So far we have roughly about 10 interested people.

Ohhh I want to go so bad! Not sure I could get back in time for my daughters soccer game...Bill is 72 miles away :-(

Is anyone from further south than me going? Any chance someone would want to pick me up a few plants and meet me at a rest stop on their way home? I'd contribute gas money as well as paying for the figs of course.

I want large fruiting sized Peters honey, Celeste & Black Jack for sure, and possibly Marseilles and white Kadota.

If anyone is willing please let me know.
