For the last few years, Matt has been talking about getting a fig tree to add to the "orchard" portion of our backyard, which consists of a plum tree and a peach tree. We think. We haven't actually gotten any fruit from either tree yet.
Anyway, he has been researching online for a while, and finally bit the bullet and placed an order last week. It cost $50.00, which seemed a little pricey to me but he selected the two gallon tub and predicated that it would already be about four or five feet high, so we could plant it this spring and have figs by fall.
Matt anticipated the delivery all week, and today, it arrived.
Please prepare yourself for the new addition to the orchard.
I laugh every time I look at it. I'm calling it the fig twig.
On the plus side, we won't have to worry about pruning it for a while.
