Dear Family & Friends
Last year, we asked villagers if figs would grow in our area. The reply was not very positive and we know there's not many who grow them, making us a bit discouraged. Because we love eating figs, we decided we just have to try growing them despite people's opinion.
Glad we did. We bought one bare-root young fig tree and planted it against a warm wall. We even got and separated an extra baby one which was attached to the main tree. Both took off! Not only that, on their second year, they started giving us little plants called suckers and fruits. It's super easy to grow.

This one is being planted in a big container. I am growing it in a container to take indoor during our cold winter. Once the outdoor figs get well established with us on it's third year - next year, I will probably replant this potted one out too. My sort of experiment to find out what's best.

Sometimes, I just have to try this way and that way in my gardening journey. There's a lot of things to learn along the way. With common sense and some boldness, we do things and usually it means success... So, don't get discourage easily:)
