Just wanted to introduce myself and show off my starter set of fig tees. I live in Vermont, and up until recently didn't think I could grow figs in this climate. I've been gardening for over fifty years and I thank my grandfather for getting me started when I was just a boy. He and my dad both grew nice figs, and I'm hoping to continue the tradition.
The three upright trees came from Joe Morle' in Boston, MA, one Paradiso, one Brown Turkey and one Black Triana. The five lower wider trees came from drivewayfarmer in NH, two Atreano, two Marseilles Black VS, and one Sal's #1. The trees are still in their pots, and sunk in ground. It's interesting to note the difference in styles of growing the trees, upright or spreading. I haven't decided which I'll follow, but I'll adopt and adapt my own style for my own needs.
It was a pleasure to meet drivewayfarmer and his wife, they're both very accomplished gardeners/farmers, and very friendly folks. I hope to get to know many of you and learn from your experience.
Thanks and enjoy your garden.
