      Almost a necessity with the 20 gal pots especially after they have been watered.

      I have a couple of green tips on the plants in cold storage. So far, I brought out one plant only, a duplicate of my best fig last year (Brooklyn Dark) that I hope to wake up and up-pot as a gift to my future in-laws (son getting married next month). It is supposed to be 70 degrees today, really unseasonably warm!

        Hard to believe it's nearly spring already. This winter has flown by for me, thankfully.

          We may skip spring and go to summer. Mid 70's today and upper 70's through Thur

              I sing mine lullabies every night so they stay sleeping(just kidding). I'M NOT READY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The buds are swelling on many and slowly starting to burst on a few. Brebas are starting to get noticeable all over the place.

                Calvin, I wasn't ready either but when the leaves were opening I got the urge. Then I
                started moving more and more of them out. The forecast is for upper 70's to the
                low 80's through next Wed and lows in mid to upper 50's.

                  I started to bring some of my 1 year old fig trees ( potted ) from my garage to outdoor abt 3 weeks ago for 3 - 4 hours only in sunny days. All leaves were healthy right from the beginning. Temperature was between 9 - 12C by the time I bring them outdoor but now I found some trees the leaves begins to wilt from 5 days ago, so I stopped bringing them outdoor again. Did I do anything wrong to cause them trouble to look wilted.

                    What do you mean by "did they perk back up after bringing them inside" ?

                    Not wilt any after you brought them back into the garage.

                    They did well outside in the sunny days but they started looking wilted in the garage. The first two weeks were doing good with the sunny days. Now 50% of the leaves are wilted then other 50% leaves are OK. Do you have any idea why this happened

                  I was gonna say...what shuffle? I put mine out on Saturday, and according to the 10 day forecast there is no looking back! Only shuffle I'm doing is in and out of the shade for the plants I'm hardening off. I also learned today that Nero600m apparently makes brebas. Dunno if it will keep it, but I'll be damned if there's not a fig on it.

                      The first trip for the trees to go back inside. Forecasting possible frost tomorrow morning and
                      likely Monday and Tuesday mornings. Look at the growth in the first pick compared to these.
                      That is eleven days with temps in the upper 70's and low 80's.

                        Snowing here. Looks like mine will be stuck inside for the next 3 days. Yours are ahead of mine. Looks like you've got some good growth going.

                          Mine will stay inside until Wed or Thur also.

                          What have your temps been there in Columbus?

                          The last couple of weeks have been good been 40-70F. I left the ones in my little greenhouse outside with a headlamp on under 45F. The next three days are 27-48F. After that, the forecast bounces around but nothing under 38F.

                        I did the shuffle last night, I'll probably just leave them until Tuesday/Wednesday.

                          I had about half of my figs and pomegranates out of the greenhouse for over a week and had to put them back. Had to start a fire last night

                            Mine are staying in the greenhouse. The radiant heater is set to keep them above 50°f.

                              Pretty heavy frost this morning and a temp of 34 degrees. Will have to wait
                              for the inevitable damage to appear to my in ground trees. All pots were inside.

                                Mine come in at night, it is way to early to leave them out over night in Colorado. Out in the morning weather permitting, if not maybe out at lunch... but always in at night.

                                I'm real surprised you did not bring your in.

                                      I'm knee deep into the shuffle and not happy about it. Weather has been up and down. Trees are in most nights now but warming is comming here in NJ Cant wait until this phase is over

                                        Been holding my breath I had out and the the cold was supposed to come in Sunday night. My forecast for Sunday am stated 42 F I woke up Sunday to 32 F But it warmed pretty quick I have moved in and I see no damage on just opening leafs, maybe the Fig Gods were watching Probably over 100 figs and likely close to a 100 other fruiting plants Pomegranates, Persimmon, Kiwi etc... At least very few 15 gal + this mostlly 5 Gal and below
