                  Hot peppers make kids run fast like rabbits. More figs will fit in great!

                        I'll probably give a couple to my mother. She loves growing things. We've been expanding our collection of bay leaf varieties for the last couple of years.

                              Just as soon as I have all the fig varieties I'll get started. I have one bay tree now as a decoy.

Pie Crust (called because of the wavy edges like a pie crust), Willow leaf aka augustifolia, aurea (golden), sicilian, Just to name a few you can order online in the states.

                                      This little fellers leaves all fell off but it had a huge amount of roots at the bottom of the coke bottle. So I repotted it. You can see a little green num coming on now.
