What is going on in my garden at the moment ? Not much really. Each day we get more signs that Autumn is coming closer fast. Today was a nice day with a bit of sun and 23 C°, yesterday it was 17 C° and it was raining very very hard, it’s typical for many Belgian Summers, one day this and the next day something completely different.
But, a miracle has happened with my fig tree, remember when I told you back in May that it only had little green buds instead of being in full leaf ? It has grown sooooo much and there are soooo many figs on it too. They won’t get ripe this year but who knows, I see they are rapidly becoming bigger….When ripe they are not big and bold like the exotic figs but small and yellowish green, red on the inside ofcourse.
THIS WAS MY FIG TREE BACK IN MAY
SEE THE LITTLE BUDS ON IT ?
LOOK AT IT NOW !!!!
LOOK AT ALL THE LITTLE FIGS !
So NEVER give up on a fig tree too soon !!! He was this Winter in my garden, unprotected ,and we had temperatures of -18 C° !!! He is standing against a South faced wall though.
