I am Vito's wife.  Our driveway looks similar.  You have some really beautiful plants.  I am always complaining that there is an ever growing "asphalt fig grove" in our driveway and yard.  We have strangers stopping and asking if the trees are for sale.  I cannot park my car in the garage in the winter because the fig trees need protection.  
 I might have to start a FGA group  (fig growers anonymous) soon.  

Any similar complaints from your better half?

Hi Bob
Beautifully desert king figs, I have a desert king that had 10 figs on it I could not wait to taste them, When they looked ripe I pick them and they were very dry and uneatable, It's a one year old tree,Would you know what caused it?

Suzi,

I am laughing at the fact that a fig in china is called a Japanese fig and in the end, it winds up being from France. It just goes to show how convoluted names can become.  I would never laugh at anyone who asks a question on this forum. 

I think we should lighten up.

Vito

I, in no way, was laughing at a question being asked.

Hello.
I brought all my plants out this morning and brought them back in the garage tonight.
I built five dollies that are 4'x4' and put most of my plants on them to wheel them in and out.  It makes it a lot easier.

I had my plants outside for three weeks now,I put them back in the garage last night and I have well over one hundred plants.
Some people claim for the in ground plants to put a sprinkler on them.
You have nothing to loose but a Little water.
