One of my favorite fruits is figs - I can remember having a huge fig tree outside my bedroom window growing up in South Africa. Now - that dry temperate climate is very, very different to where I live now, about as far away as possible in fact. When I saw fig trees for sale I knew I just had to have one - that little child in me kept saying - how delicious those figs were - don't you remember? I bought the tiny thing and put it into a little blue pot that I also just had to have.... Isn't it just as cute as a button?
Does anyone else know exactly what and when to plant in their garden?
Do you often buy something just because you like the taste? Even though you are pretty sure they will not do well in your climate? I do like to grow things I will eat :) Are you likely to be more succesful learning to love what you can grow easily in your climate?
