Every year it seems to be a big surprise as to what our biggest fig tree is going to do. It’s been several years since it produced a decent crop. This year, it looked like it wasn’t going to do anything. Vince decided to cut a lot of it back but didn’t cut it all the way to the ground. I’m thinking he should have because all the growth seems to be coming from the ground and there are lots of branches that seemed to have growth so he left those but they haven’t done much. Some look totally dead and then at some point, there will be some green leaves, then more dead looking branch on out towards the end.
This is the fig tree that on a good year will give us probably 50 gallons or more of figs.
So far, I can find this one fig on the tree. At this rate, I’m not sure it’s worth the water we’re putting on it. I love figs so I’m really hoping it perks up and produces a good crop but I’m not holding my breath!
