Under the magnifying glass: Fig tree

This “gift” fig tree  has been neglected for over a month. In my mind’s eye, the project would take too much time and I just didn’t have the time–and energy!! Well, frankly, I still didn’t have the time and energy **BUT** knew the little tree needed to be transplanted. With a somewhat cooler evening (after a brief rain), I drilled holes in the bottom of a large container. Then I cut up and cubed a Styrofoam container. First thing this morning, I drove to the farm store and purchased planter soil (and fifty pound bag of bird seed). Note: The farm store provides the large containers “free” so I buy from them.
