  • North central Alabama fig search

    Hello everyone. I am hoping to find someone very close to Guntersville Alabama with some extra figs. I have A couple ripening but it will be next year before my trees are big enough to produce enough figs for me and my household. I need some fig friends close around my home. I have spotted a farm 1 mile from my house with several 15 ft high by 20 foot wide fig trees. Trying to catch someone home but I am covered in tattoos from being a tattoo artist and many old folks wont answer the door.

      Check Farmers Markets, Craigslist, Nextdoor, classifieds, local buy/sell papers, U Pick directories…. You might also leave a letter/note for the people with the big trees and/or have a friend with a more conventional appearance talk to them initially.

      Good luck!👍🏼

              Don't feel bad... old people can't see far enough to see your tattoos probably. They don't answer for strangers anymore period.

                Thank you. I been looking for this info. I couldnt remember where I saw it. And as for mushrooms I been growing from spore off and on for about 8 years. I love edible muahrooms. A good shiitake is my fave. I have 2 huge oak trees need pruning way back on my property. I plan to do so during proper time of year and will have a shiitake forest with strains for different times of year. Ive only done small scale so far so it will be a huge upscale for me. Thanks for the info . have a great day.

                  Sounds like an awesome project. It's hard to beat a log grown Shiitake for sure!
