|LSU "Tiger" Fig|
This is the first fig of the year from the Battleground place. The situation for this tree - just a start - is so unnatural, I won't predict what that means for next year. By "unnatural", I mean the tree was started from cutting in January, given TLC on the deck all summer long, and planted in the ground in late summer. The big test now - will this Louisiana - bred fig survive a Pacific NW winter?

|Fig harvest today|
Also harvesting Lattarula figs. Those are the sweetest of the bunch. The fig harvest photo includes a few figs - I had a much larger bowl of figs not included.
Not pictured, yet, is a ripening fig on Carini. Like the Tiger fig, also on a tree started from cutting this year, and at ground level. I placed some plastic mesh around the fig last night. Check today for whether the fig is still there and intact.
