              My fiancee snapped the photo of the pound fig, but I didn't even know this stall existed until the next day. Went back and no luck! Maybe next year =) Let me know if you know of one I missed

              Still to collect:
              - Ocracoke Blue
              - Pound
              - "Jefferson's" Brown Turkey

              Pokemon'd it:
              - Sugar

            Live Music is a big thing at Ocracoke FigFest. At least as important as the figs =)

                    Malcolm, so glad you made the Ocracoke Fig Festival. I was there in 2017. Updating the island Festival after the last hurricane will add interest.

                      Yeah, apparently a lot of the figs have been cut down. They're having a hard time getting interest in keeping them going. There's a whole restoration project, but most of the island is running off one person power. Even the Thai Moon restaurant is only ONE PERSON taking orders, cooking food, answering phones, etc, so needless to say it's order the day ahead. That said, the food was amazing. Everyone is struggling to recover after that hurricane, can't find employees, and the COVID situation isn't helping.

                      wellingtonbill I got a sugar fig I'm going to try to propagate for you, but I couldn't find the other varieties. They were already selling out by the time I got there. Apparently there's just not a lot of stock, and Chester's knees are getting too bad to do the gardening he used to do. They need young blood, but there's a lack of manpower every where on the island.

                        It was. It was also our first family vacation. Never would have happened if not for the fig community. Thanks everyone for showing me this awesome hobby!
