                  We all had a limit once or twice, let us know how that works out for you!!

                    To funny, we all said the same thing.

                    I originally thought 2 maybe 4 would be it, then I thought 20 at most.

                    I'm now approaching 70 and there seems to be no end in sight.

                    Perhaps stacking them in the garage and seeing how much space I have will help slow the collecting.

                    Not likely.

                      My limit established in in 2008 and I hope to get there again some day. Again.

                        I meant to say my limit established in 2008 was 24 or 2 dozen. I'll get there eventually, just need to do some culling.

                        Adam, I haven't picked those out yet, maybe am pretty sure about a dozen or so. Up to this point I've made space to try just about everything that sounded decent. For most of this year I've pretty much added things that really had a compelling reason to add. I think after next year at least half of the 300 or so are going to do a better job of convincing me that they deserve to stay. In many cases, small size or think skins might be reason enough for elimination. Because of some sentimental influences, I wouldn't be surprised if I decide to keep up to 40 but would probably focus growing multiple trees of only 10 or so.

                      The hard part is knowing that there will be copious cuttings available for purchase in a few months.....I see hundreds of cups filled with twigs in my future....

                            Exactly the opposite Phil.....although I don't consider it "wasting time" I think of it as "daydreaming".....especially while I'm at work I am learning lots about figs....today I was reading about caprifigs....thinking I may want to add a couple to my orchard...especially since I will be planting Zidi and unk. Pastilliere....

                              Thanks for the good laugh.

                              I only wanted a single Mission fig when I started.

                                  I honestly do not know. Because of our drought, I've given a good number away. But I still have more than a sane human would have.

                                    I understand Gina.....as I collect figs I do ask myself if each one is worthy of watering. The rest of my garden is drought tolerant.... Aloes, cycads, agaves and drought tolerant flowering trees like chorisia, Erythrina and brachychiton.
