Hey from Arkansas!
« on: August 19, 2019, 05:08:28 PM »
Thanks first off to the people who had the idea to start this awesome forum! My background is in market gardening and mushroom cultivation.  I am somewhat new to figs, but I've learned a lot lately. I hope to be able to share some of my stupidly expensive trees I bought before becoming aware of this site, as well as benefit from the many people with similar experiences.   Thanks!
I truly love this hobby!

WISHLIST: CdD Blanc, LSU Tiger, LSU Champagne, LSU Gold, LSU Scott's Black, Azores Dark, MBVS and other Mt. Etnas.  Anything reliable and reliably tasty.

HAVE:Olympian, Celeste, Lattarula, Peter's Honey, W. Adriatic, YLN, VDB, others...

Hello and welcome to southernfigsforum. First off I think everyone is made that grave Mistake by having what they call the now syndrome but in reality you're not getting it now you got to wait a couple years for the fruiting.

We too enjoy growing mushrooms so we have some things in common you got questions just ask we are more than happy to help anybody.
