Fig Cuttings 2006

January. Cuttings started in yogurt cups, in seed starting soil.

April. Now they have been moved up into larger containers, and are outside under the grape arbor. It's too chilly at night to keep them outside, so each night I brought them back indoors, each morning returned them outdoors.

July. Moved up again into larger containers. Now they are in the vegetable garden all day. There is some shade from the strongest sun.

September. This melanzana has a little fig. This is about the final size this year.

These are chronological photos of fig cuttings from last year. They are not necessarily the same ones in progressive photos (I didnt have that as my intent when I took the photos) but they are representative, and most grew at similar rates. The Melanza and Hardy Chicago had one small fig each by the end of the year, but I don't think that they had a chance for the best flavor development.
