I also wanted to say thank you for all that do for this forum. I'm sure it has not always been easy...at times, members forget that u have a full time job secondary to moderating this forum. I think in order to moderate this forum, you would need to be in here 24/7 and of course, it is not realistic by any stretch of imagination...it is sad to see that a few negative members can cause a collective many members to go without the knowledge gained from here. I have met a very few members who I have gotten to know in the last year or so. I can't thank enough. It is thru them that the love of figs continue...as they are more than supportive and most importantly, they have the patience in teaching me how to root cuttings when I wanted to give up on this hobby. All in all, I'd like this forum to exist mainly due to the many wisdoms imparted by the vets. I'd also wish that members can be more mature and more accepting of our differences but not be so mean to each other...wished it was different but I totally understand that u will do what you feel is the right thing to do. Again, thank you!

This was an unusual but fun post on this forum, I wonder what other snakes folks commonly see in their fig groves?  I see Mexican hognose snakes, Sonoran gopher snakes and Sonoran desert king snakes.

Yes, thank you to our generous members. I was at the post office this morning with 3 boxes to be shipped out and I got the death stares from ppl behind me. I can't imagine the boxes/shippings that u mailed. The tortured stares that u get as u exit must be exhausting!

i had asked several months ago if he was taking new orders and he responded last night.  He sent a general email to let me know that he is not taking on new orders.  He said he is working on fulfilling the current orders that he has on file.  So, hang on tight, everyone!

Joe, I had a ghost pepper plant on my deck last year, someone (squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, who knows what), took a bite into one pepper and left the other half of the pepper hanging from the plant! Those ghost peppers can burn a hole in a human stomach but yet, that did not deter them from coming back for more. It never ceases to amaze me of what these critters will do to eat.

I feel for you, looking at those damages. I have groundhogs, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, and deer problems here too. It's always the battle with wild ones and guess what? I always lose...tiring, only cuz I got really tired of fighting them.

I'm so sorry...I should have introduced myself. I recently suffered some personal losses and I've been introduced to gardening to relieve stresses and dealing with grief. I find a lot of therapeutic value in gardening and have found it very helpful. A friend recommended this forum and spoke very highly of ppl on here... Just thought I jump right in and ask for help. As a newbie, the only thing that I grow are leaves, no fruit, which is very frustrating to me. I've also killed a few cuttings already but I won't give up! Anyway, I live in Boston, MA, which means I don't have a choice but to grow figs in a pot. The winter here is really nasty! thank you for welcoming me to this forum.
