  • Introduction

    Hello, My name is Ken. I live in Northwest Florida across the bay from Destin. My wife and I love gardening. Our figs : Black Madeira (JF&E), Celeste, unknown Dwarf, Gino's Black (Fig88), Italian Golden Honey (from Century Farm & Orchard; theirs came from the old Paradise Nursery; may be Votata), Marseilles Black VS (Fig 88), Smith (JF&E), White Portuguese (unknown variety from EBay), and an unknown black fig sold as Brown Turkey. We would love to have BB10 and Col de Dame Blanc, Gris, or Noire. Others of interest: I-258, Celeste LF, Champagne CE, Valle Negra, Nero 600M, Black Celeste, and O'Rourke. Other fruit we grow: persimmons, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, peaches, and jujubes. This past summer we started growing heirloom tomatoes. Now store bought maters don't have much flavor in comparison. We also grow other assorted vegetables and peppers. I'm looking forward to getting know everyone. Blessins y'all.

            Welcome Ken! Most folks are pretty well behaved here, I think I'm the only crazy one and they seem to tolerate me pretty well most of the time. I'm glad you joined us here.
