    Beautiful orchard, Frank.
    How are you keeping the large area under each tree weed free? It doesn't look like there is a lot of mulch there.

      Ed, I spray some glycophosphate a few times a year around the mulched area to make mosing the grass easier.

      I must agree Frank, it's been a good Spring for the trees. We've have ample water after a somewhat dry start. My trees are loaded and all I can hope for is that the constant rains taper off as we get into the ripening season. It would be terrible to lose another crop of wonderful figs to the rain as has been the case for the last two years. I just wish I had the room to make them look as good as yours.

        Gene, I've seen pictures of your yard and it is nothing to sneeze at. How's the bird cage?

                Thanks. It looked like crap a few months ago after all of the die back.

                  I agree Frank - my container trees all look good and the in-grounds are bouncing back sooner than I expected after loosing most of their above-ground growth. Maybe this will be the long, warm fig season (without excessive rain during ripening) that we haven't had for a while.
