In/Out Dig/Stitch back and forth, often just moments at a time. Rain/Sun Rain/Sun. Restless. But i think of Nepal. Flax. Planted in a small rock room. slow purposeful digging out of the sand floor of this room. Filling in with composted soil. Mixed together. Watered 3 times with it seeping... Continue reading

People that i used to work for, years ago, who moved to Colorado years ago, who gave me the pick-up truck Sonny, also gave me via a church fund, a monthly amount of $100. This was because they both kept inheriting too much money. so...a check has come each month... Continue reading

yes. evidently, the tree will just continue carrying on with it's treeness. Only when the roots TOUCH an edge will it turn it's mind to setting fruit. But then again...what about the places in the "OLD WORLD" where they originally come from. Want to find out the answer to this.

So many things to know. I didn't think figs are bothered much by pests???? are there figs in Australia? it was incredible wasn't it...the fogging. Even here, when my daughter first came they would do that where she rented. She moved. That was maybe 1991. Not long ago. I wonder if they still do it further into the valley along the irrigation ditches. again...so many things to know. They live now in california where they "dust" the crops....the food that ends up in our stores all over the United States

i have been reading and watching UTube and yes, this is said over and over. One utube that i really liked, a UK gardner, tells how the Old Gardners would plant the tree 18 inches from the foundation of the house and then set pieces of slate, upright, in the hole before filling it in, thereby creating a kind of "container". Need to keep reading. How does work in other countries where they are just planted???...where they live Free? But i realized that for now, a container is good enough. This year and maybe next. Much to learn. Do you have a fig tree?
