Everything potted is on its first leaf so no anticipation there.... Even my in ground trees which are exploding with growth after getting cut down to the ground last fall are just getting big enough to begin setting their main crop figs so I guess all I can really look forward to. in the short term. is a fresh batch of Fig Newton's....

Any ripe fig is a favorite but since I have to choose I would have to say;
