Dang it....noticed this weekend that we lost one of the two fig trees we have.
|Dying fig tree|
We think what happened to this one is that when the guys were clearing the backyard, they backed over it. It looked like it was just bent and so it was propped up and staked. For a few weeks, it seemed to be recovering but it must have had more damage than we could see. The other one planted nearby is doing fine.
Time to find another fig tree! I guess there could be worse things than having to go fruit tree shopping. Of course, we can't plant now, it's far too hot, but I can baby it along until the Fall. And if I happened to "stumble across" a few more fruit trees, well, who knows what I'll have to buy.
