We have a fig bought last year and planted in a pot diameter 30" it was doing well although we were upset when it dropped the 6 green figs it had when we bought it.. Then great excitemnt it produced more, 13 in total and we were expecting to be eating figs this september, but no. We had some raiders who stripped it one day, or could have been just one, any way I hope that little squirrel had the 'runs' because he ate the darn lot!!
Needless to say we will have fleece on the next lot that grows and Mr Squirrel will have to eat some one elses fruit, perhaps the apples off an old tree in some waste ground behind our house. Yes they are delightful to watch and we do give him (and now a Mrs Squirrel peanuts)but they are not going to have my figs next year!!
