Good news and bad news.
You may remember those fig cuttings I wrote about in the early spring?
The good news is that one survived.
The bad news is that six did not. We were away too long in mid spring and the cuttings I took succumbed to slime and neglect on my part, and just this one clung to life. Over the last month it has put out good roots, and I have just potted it up. It will continue the legacy of The Nameless Fig, whose own fruit is now hard and green, and will ripen towards the end of September.
That's the good news.
But it means that the folks in line for successfully rooted cuttings must be denied. I am very sorry. I will try again.
I should really start a blog about figs. Everybody wants one. (Figs, I mean.)
