Verry nice Ben.   When do you acquire your cuttings?    I prefer fresh cuttings in the spring but if not taking my own, I find them harder to acquire than in the fall.
Wish List: Black Tuscan, Black Zadar, Bordissot Negra Rimada, Buzzone Nero, Cessac, Col de Dam Gegantina, Cravens Craving, Figoin

Thank you John. I acquired most of the cuttings in winter and stored them in the fridge, few of them I acquired them this Spring.

Figs are doing well.  Garden started late cause I lost all my seedlings during that crazy freeze we had.  I hope things start to pick up.  This yr is not a great yr for us so far.  Most of my nanas died down to the ground but are back. 

How is your plants doing Ben?

Ben,

Funny you should mention chickens.  We have being discussing of adding chickens to our collection.  They would fit right in with our growing garden.  Chickens/eggs for food and they supply their own fertilizer.  A win all around.  Good luck with the chicken poo.
