Last year I bought a fig tree at the local grocery store for $16, put it in a large pot and placed it on my sunny deck. When the leaves fell off, I put it in a large bucket, wrapped it with insulation and plastic and put it in the garage. This spring, March to be exact, I wanted to see if it survived. When I unwrapped it there were new buds on all of the twigs. I pulled it to a sunny spot in the garage, gave it water and fertilizer. When it was warm enough I placed it back on the sunny deck where it got full sun. It is now September and the tree is loaded with beautiful Turkish figs! Last night I sliced some of them, put a little gorgonzola on each fig, placed them under the broiler for a few minute’s and served them as a appetizer. What a treat!
