  • Just a "Hello"

    Hey folks! Been a while as - yep - I've been ill.
    BUT I thought I'd sign on and say "Howdy" so not all of you guys forget me.
    I had a neighbor take about 20 lbs of frozen figs from last year and in return she sent me fig/blackberry jam (good) and fig chutney (excellent).
    I am currently over whelmed by setting up cuttings for folks who already paid for fig plants and expect them this spring - I ran out of trees last year so I offered to let folks prepay and order trees.
    Anyway I hope to be back in the ole fig community at full strength soon. Of course I have thought things had turned around several times already and . . . well . . . you know how it is.
    Thanks again to those of you that helped me get my fig trees inside for winter. I watered them yesterday and all is just fine.
    OK see yous guys later. mgg

                    I was wondering what you were up to, I remember you asking for some help this fall and then pretty much dropping off. Sorry to hear that your ailment turned out to be a major ordeal, but I'm happy to see you've gotten the upper hand on it.
                    Welcome back!

                                    Glad to hear you are getting back on track. As much enthusiasm as I see on this forum this should be a great year for the fig world.

                                              Don't worry I can wait as I'm up to my neck in too many varieties as it is. Unless SV is very cold hardy, but I have not seen info one way or another. Do you know? thx, mgg
