  • My First Ronde de Bordeau

              That's what my first 4 O'Rourke's looked like - they fell off early. Looks like the next ones are filling out better.

                    Hopefully there are more figs on the tree.

                      Hey Bob, do you think you have a dud tree or the conditions haven't been right in your area? I can set you an air layer on one of mines, they are young and productive.

                        Bob,

                        I think I figured out your issue. That coin is quite disgustingly filthy. I am certain your fig picked up some sort a disease from it. You need to start using UN-circulated coins for reference

                            Thanks! This has been an odd year. Rarely have highs been below 90. In hindsight I think my Osmocote Pro 6 Month pellets lasted less than 2 months and so my plants didn't get proper fertilization early on. But that's just a guess.

                              I'll set an air layer on one of trees, I have one from bass and one from Bob harper and they are both productive for small trees. I just figured out who you are from f4f, lol.

                            Look at the bright side Bob, the next first one is bound to be better than the first, first one.

                              That's a new flavor group for me. I am thinking figarita

                                I'm thinking the raccoon swallowed that one whole,perhaps with a lemon that upset his stomach.

                                  Nice theory but I picked it right off the tree. Even the critters weren't interested in it

                                    My Black Mission gave me the or for like that this year before I got a real fig from it. At least it is producing now
