        Did you took any measures to prevent rolling?

                No all are outside I am thinking they will be fine. Don’t think here in Watertown we are going to get that really high wind like by the shoreline fingers crossed 🤞

                    Stay safe Rob! Moving about 30 trees into the Garage today. Looks like it will hit 18mph winds tomorrow afternoon, in my area. Got some figs ripening and can't take any risks! The trees that you gifted to me are doing amazing, thanks again!

                    My husband says you did a great job laying them down. We’re from Connecticut. The last place we lived in was Clinton. Glad I moved. We’ve been through enough hurricanes.

                      BTW I just remembered your neck of the woods would always get the stronger thunder storms. That must be hard to deal with when you have almost ripe figs on trees.

                  • #12
                    Looks good but I might consider a few stakes and tie a close line size rope over them in case there are swirling winds. I would hate to see them after they were rolling back and forth. Just a thought, might even be overkill. Your trees look so good I would hate to see them broken up.

                      We've had 6+" of rain here in Chattanooga, and all my figs are watery blobs. (Well most anyway). But that is nothing compared to hurricane winds! Finger crossed that all will be well. We are pulling for you here in TN!

                        I am going to leave my 75 potted trees as they are because it would me too much work to remove all of the drip irrigation, lay them down, right them and reinstall the irrigation system into each pot. Keeping my fingers crossed.

                          Same here and hoping for the best. Made sure all tags were secure though. I had visions of metal tags scattered all over the place. Good luck everyone.

                        @CTROB depending where you are in ct, you may have over prepared! Story of our lives over here! 1”-56” of snow. It misses. Biggest hurricane to hit since bob / Gloria. Misses and heading for RI. Better to be prepared than not. Best of luck!

                        Good luck, we got a lot of rain from Fred, but the predicted winds were quite a bit lighter than first forecast. We wish everyone safety and no damage.

                          We are getting steady moderately heavy rain since last night with a few breaks. Wind isn'ttoo bad here, thankfully. I moved all of my potted figs under a covered patio yesterday so that they don't get saturated, especially since many are ripening figs presently.

                                Yesterday ended up being almost a beach day down on the outer Cape where we were for the weekend. Blue sky with a little sun breaking through, high temps, but just enough wind to blow the sand around. Best part was that many had evacuated the day before, so no traffic or crowds!

                                I hope everyone who was told they were in "the path" made it through with no issues.
