I was watering and feeding today and found a fig on the fig tree in the basement!  Considering that I have never had edible fruit on one of them before, I'm tickled pink!

Thanks for the link!  I think I'm the 69 year old version of that lady.  I can sit outside and feel the vibes from things growing, and in many cases with things I plant, dying!  We told everyone last summer and fall that if we don't answer the front door, just head down to the chicken coop, we're either pounding nails or meditating under the pear tree!

 

In a couple of weeks the greenhouse I was given will be skinned and then the figs can go live outside.  My husband is trying to remodel the basement living room with the fall retinue of plants and the new spring seedlings all in his way.

 

This summer's challenges include sweet potatoes!
