Hello, I am new to the forum and new to growing figs.  I have a 40 tree private orchard and grow pome and stone fruit, grapes and various berries.  It is exciting to know there is a nice group here.  I am also not only excited about my new fig cuttings that are on their way to my home, I also wanted to touch base with 'Bamboorabbit' from garden wed.  Many thanks and hello to all, Mrs.G

Welcome, I am impressed by your orchard already MrsG.  I found this great group of wise and generous gardeners last fall and now it is a blessed part of my life.    Wait till you get the fig bug.  I had 6 trees when I started and now I have 60+ with too many more to count rooting.  Great crazy fun.  Enjoy.

Hi All,

I have extensive writing and graphic arts experience and it would be a pleasure to volunteer my time put together a newsletter for the foundation, unless of course you already do.

In that case I would love to contribute.

I am easy to get a hold of so let me know what I can do for this community of great people!

Today I took the time to read through this thread.  Glad I did.  It actually clarified some things for me.

I read that in February cuttings would be available.  Is that still the process?

Thanks

Thanks for responding, TheFigster.  So sorry to hear about your bad weather.  You really don't think of Texas and freezing weather at the same time.  Hopefully the roots survived and it won't be a total loss.  If it helps at all I'll have baby plants in the summer.
