That’s really cool. One could probably do the same thing you did with a lean-to against a house, it might be easier this way.
My neighbor’s one fig in a pot isn’t fruiting, he should be putting it in his driveway but leaves it on the deck during the summer where there there’s some afternoon shade. His friend around the corner is big into figs. As exciting as this is, there’s a lot of other things I should get growing before I get into trying in-ground figs.
I don’t grow figs, I just read half this thread and got excited.
