An Alameda Garden: Baby Figs

Baby Figs

The garden is really starting to come to life now. I haven't quite figured out how I wanted to prune my Brown Turkey fig tree yet (whether I should keep it single-trunked or let it go to two or three trunks). But nature isn't waiting for me to make up my mind. I noticed that little figs have already begun to form on the lower branches I was considering taking off. I guess those branches will be staying, at least for the time being. I have no idea how long it will take these figs to mature and ripen, but I can't wait to taste them!

  1. Nice little plant.

    We planted one last autumn. Our first ever. Had one fig last year. Just re-designed out back yard, and moved it near the patio. Maybe we can pick figs right from the chairs someday.

    Just saw you blog posted on a helpful gardener forum, and dropped in.
