    I have 2 rooted Celeste's available for any one who is new and dreds the Game of Rooting.
    Drop me a witty, pun intended line, I'm gonna let my witty 10 year old be my co judge, so make it child appropriate please. I don't want to be paying for years of " things my parents made me read and now I'm scarred for life" therapy sessions.


    Two funniest get a rooted Celeste, shipping is on me, I just take that out of the allowance of my kids.
    I know it seems a lot of work for "just" a Celeste, full disclosure I need the laughs. Two and a half months of summer break and entertaining pre teens, while being in the midst of a months long renovation is no joke, !. That's why I never complain when they ask to go to the local ice cream salon, they actually have a flavor called "Exausthed Parent" . The main ingredient is Bourbon.....how genius.

    Oh, you need also atleast 10 posts to be able to sent private messages, otherwise I won't be able to get your adress to ship it to you.

    The subjects are depicted below. Not the chicken, she thinks by photo bombing my setup she will get some treats. If it comes without figs, it's because Princess has snatched them away.

    EDIT: USA only,, and restricted States are secluded.. sorry,, trying not to break any laws.

    I hope no one photoshops the fig tator onto that chicken. I would rather see him riding Princess than the fig mule. Who does the photoshop here TorontoJoe

      She is kinda feisty and very empowered, even the rooster is terrified of her.

    Did you hear that a midget fortuneteller escaped from prison last week? It was a small medium at large.

        She acts like a bossy matriarch. Why the kids ever named her Princess still baffles me.

        I'm wondering: where are the fun loving people?

        I have another person who reacted, so if no one else is reacting on my post you guys will both get one.

        Also,I might be able to hook you up with VDB and Kadota later down the road.

        FloraFig like I said, Iโ€™ll pay for them, finding ungrafted figs has been really hard, and I live somewhere with basically zero fig risk so Iโ€™m planning to grow everything in the ground.

      Maybe specify how "new" you have to be, there has been plenty signing up.

      Nothing like minimal work for a free treat

      Kevin, N. Ga 7b Cheers!

      Wishing all of you a bountiful harvest!

        Ktrain , that's a good one, thank you. I should have thought about that earlier. Feels unjust to change the rules now.

      Badgerferrit, we will work something out. I'm not into selling fig plants, but covering shipping for the other two varieties will help.

      I have done some airlayers so it probably will take a month or so.

      Great idea for a giveaway. That chicken does look empowered. I guess she senses there's no pot in her future (?)

        Thank you Otis, it's you and other generous Ourfigs members who inspired me.

        I think she knew the moment she was named all chances to end up in a pot were gone.

        @it Could us another day , you should've seen her. The rooster we got, because my husband said he was going to protect the flock, was terrified of her. We eventually had to give him away because she would attack him.

        Was he smaller than her? It's weird that a rooster will run away from a hen, even the bantam roosters will be at the top of the pecking order.

        He was same size as her, but he was very docile and not really brave.

        Funny thing is my husband called him Wrath.

      I'm already struggling with a celeste, so no tree for me. Sharing just because

      I saw this on my toddler's popsicle yesterday: why did the broom miss his meeting? Because he overswept.

      Also, what are the strongest days of the week? Saturday and Sunday, the rest are weekdays.

      My cutting that refuses to grow has me stumped. I can't get to the root of the problem. Pun intended .

        FloraFig keep an eye on Princess. I hope that she doesn't touch those im-peck-able Celestes else egg-strodinary measures including fowl play will have to be taken, especially if it is on fry-day.

        Thanks, just trying to play along. I won two nice Celeste trees last year in similar contests and have a nice third that I rooted out over the winter so I won't be in the running for one. Giveaway like these are a nice way for newbies to get a few different varieties.

        I meant what I said about Princess

      You have enough Celeste to feed your entire neighborhood , but I love the participation. I'm always in for some good humor.

      Princess is cackling up a storm, I don't think she agrees. Although I've seen her gobbling down a piece of fried chicken, so who knows.
