The only good thing to happen this month is I got to eat my first fresh fig of the year. It also happened to be the first time tasting it. It was my 9 month old, 4ft tall Col de Dame Grise airlayer that was growing all winter in the greenhouse.It is truly amazing the difference in tree maturity vs a cddg cutting which I am also growing and is a month younger.
So I got home from a 3 day vacation at the hospital and I went to check on my plants before laying down when I spied my first ripe fig on my cddg. I gave it a little squeeze... Nice and soft with some cracks and wrinkles, perfect! Not as pretty as cddn but who cares.
I sliced her open and mmmmm jammy goodness. Pretty good for such a young tree. Hopefully I get to taste many more.
