I just wanted to publicly thank Ed for officially enabling me with my very first fig tree... LOL

Funny story, I am sure he will laugh too, but thought it would be cool to share and have everyone get a laugh out of....

So I traded Ed a few things for his incredible (and I really mean incredible) Hardy Chicago.. we set up a time and place to meet--a busy starbucks parking lot near my place.  Here we are with an assortment of trees talking in the parking lot--everyone is of course staring.  Within minutes we are approached by a less than sober guy, inquiring about the fig tree, who begins to play a game of "do you know this person".. which of course led to a story of his childhood and his fathers fig tree, which we then find out his father grew from a cutting... just another example of "everyone has a fig story" LOL...

anyway, I guess you had to be there to realize just how funny this was....

But, thank you again Ed! 

Oh, and the tree is PERFECT for where I wanted it.. fits right in :)

Thanks to all for the nice comments.  I did pretty well in the trade also.  It's always good to diversify the horticultural collection.  Hey Art sorry but Lets go Rangers!  Are you still looking for black zadar?

LOL!!! You better hope for a miracle. The Pens are on cruise control. Crosby is finally starting to score.

I really appreciate the offer of Black Zadar, but our buddy a little north of you (Vito) beat you to it.
I'm going to try and make it to the fig fest again this year. Let me know if you are looking for anything.
