Encanto Farms

Fig Cuttings for 2105

Due to work schedules it will not be possible to take all of our cuttings at once, as in previous years, which, logistically, means that we cannot put out an availability list as in previous years. At this point in time it appears that our only option will be to list them for sale on Ebay as there is time to take the cuttings over the next several weeks.

 They will be under the Ebay seller ID of “pitangadiego” or http://www.ebay.com/sch/pitangadiego/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

That works.

It'll be interesting to see the bidding on the various varieties.

This is truly unfortunate for Forum members. I thought one of the benefits of being a member was NOT to have to bid on cuttings through eBay.

Hey things happen, it's a lot of work. Just remember and be appreciative of past good deals. There are only a few more to add to my list and I will just wait it out. Thanks Jon.

Does anyone have the file from last years, I tried reading through the one thread from 2014 and didnt see it. Not sure if anyone saved it, but I think itll help people get an idea of what could be available. (And I want to see it too)

In the past, when the list was released, members could make their selections at fixed rates from the whole lot and have their shipping amount calculated based on the amount of cuttings in the final order.
Now, if someone wins an auction for one variety, would you hold onto that one order until the end of the distribution season so the buyers would be able to save money on shipping if they wanted more varieties?

Also, will any varieties be available for the "buy it now" option?

I think this link works: http://figs4funforum.websitetoolbox.com/file?id=1793118    
A few posts below is the original 2014 list in doc form.



edited after getting on a computer instead of my phone: 
The list posted above by abcd in pieces is actually the second list with the leftovers, not the original list from February 2014.

He said he was going to "list them for sale on ebay."  My guess is most or all will be a fixed price.

Edit - Oops, just checked his link.  So far all are auctions.

It will  definitely be interesting to watch

For those interested, here is last year's list in a document form.  I am doubtful Jon will be able to offer as many varieties by auction this year.

I will say that although I am a little disappointed that Jon has had to change how he is distributing his cuttings, I understand and accept that.  First, the fig plants are his, he has a right to do what he wants.  I do not think that we as forum members have any right or privilege, as someone stated above.  Second, which of us would do all of that work for so little in return?

Thanks Jon, for making them available in any form!  Is there going to be a way for requesting certain varieties be added to the auction list, say 'XYZ fig' if it does not show up for auction?  And I like the idea above of holding cuttings for shipping, if a member is interested in bidding on a number of varieites.  But that of course makes the work much more complicated.


Wish I lived in the SD area, I'd volunteer to go help with the work for a few days...would be like an internship in fig raising.  :)

Totally understandable as I can't even imagine the amount of work involved. It's a shame though that eBay will make so much off the fees. Would almost like a couple in person auctions. I would fly out west for that!

Hi,
Be prepared for the truck load of cuttings... If when winning an auction you get them all :) from that strain - all as in the pic .
Or how is it going to be ?
Auction is normally for one baggie - if there are 10 baggies for one particular strain ... Will it be an auction per strain per week ?
Or will it be the 10 best auctions getting served ? @Armando, if so then you need to monitor the 10th best offers ... Just saying .

Just out of curiosity of course :) .
@RichinNJ, meh too :)

That's disappointing.  I thought that was one of the perks of membership.  Was so looking forward to the list next month.  Was hoping to finally get a Maltese Beauty or Ice Crystal this year.  I'm sure everything I'm be interested in this year will sky-rocket on ebay.

Some members will use the money they normally donate each year as bidding money. This could offset the auction price which will definitely be higher than Jon's generous selling price from 2014. If you still do not win what you want then use that money as an offer to another member for the same varieties. Just a thought.

I'm sure John had a hard time coming to this, and an even harder time informing everyone that this is what he is being forced to do this year.  It is a privilege to be able to buy from John no matter what the media is.  Hopefully John will be caught up next year and go back to business as usual, this year I hope he is able to make more money then normal, not only will it benefit the foundation, it will benefit all of us in the long run. 

John, I wish you the best on E-Bay, that sounds like a huge amount of work as well, I don't envy you my friend.

And you and few other keep your business to yourself, everybody have right to make a $$ for any reason they believe suits them.
Some members here trying to sell cuttings in hundreds and then crying publicly that it did not happened.
Need a tissue?

There are people selling cuttings on this forum that make a small profit. They are not giving them for free. So who ever buys them can do,whatever they want. Stand your ground ABCD. LOL.

FREE WOULD BE IF ABCD JUST PAID SHIPPING. JUST SAYING.

If you receive 4 or 5 cuttings of a certain variety,why couldn't you sell a few to recoup costs?
