        Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.

                    NP, I'll just kill the switch and dump the memory. Or take the drives from the NVR with me.

                  That's why we wear Ninja suits and carry EMP weapons with us, as well as dog sedatives.

                      though I am a huge fan of snakes and have many for pets over the years. ... they ate delicious also.

                      making off with figs. ... terabyte drives and snakes... this hyste just keeps getting better! !!

                        Thanks, Frank, nice find.

                        I don't have a need to find cold-hardy figs but notice that this nursery claims Blanche de Argenteuil/Blanche de Versailles withstands -25C (-13F). Some of our folks that have been dealing with the polar vortex influences might like that.

                          I know I would love fig that live in cold! I would still cover because last two winter down to -40F with windchill. You wife great to tell you. I wonder if the girls on this forum need to sneak fig past the husband? Lol
