Sadly, the baby fig tree I got last year did not survive. During the depths of winter the temperature fell down to 20F in the area where I was keeping it. Too chilly for a baby fig, I guess. Not so easily discouraged in my fig growing efforts, I bought a Purple Fig developed by the University of Louisiana. This little tree is already almost 3 feet tall. The one I got last year was only 8 inches tall.
I also bought a Whitney fruiting crabapple tree, a hazelnut to replace one that is failing to thrive and a big experiment, a nectarine. The crabapple bears golf ball or larger sized fruit, great for fresh eating or making jelly. The nectarine is rated for our cold hardiness zone. I planted them all yesterday. We will see how things go. It is always a big gamble when a new tree is put in the ground. I hope all my baby trees produce one day.
