when i was little boy and stayed with my grandparents i always loved their fig tree. i would usually check figs each day to see which i could pick off to eat. now that i am grown up,i wanted to start my own fig tree and have read all i could from websites. the one i found most informative was http://figs4fun.com/

here are my starter figs.
