A good read, thanks, Sentient!

Interesting article about the history of figs in the Southeast.  One of my varieties was Thomas Jefferson's favorite.  Figs do well in much of Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, North Florida, Texas, California, western Washingon, western Oregon, etc.  There is no comparison between dried and fresh, and no comparison between store bought and fresh.  

This pic is from last summer.  Figs are my favorite fruit.  This winter I'm starting more varieties from cuttings, which is easy to do.  If all of the cuttings grow, I won't know what to do with the trees.  Something else for winter gardening.   I'm in zone 8, they do great here.

To Annie regarding "tips on growing corn". Pretty simple: dig furrow, plant seeds, cover, be patient! Oh yes, and deal with raccoons!

Thanks Sentient Biped, I like this site:

Mushrooms: Your Garden’s Best Friend

Comment by Sentient Biped on January 19, 2013 at 3:35pm

Why Mushrooms might be your garden's best friend - from central Texas garden blog.  This ties into Joan's post about mycelium, as well.  

I don't know if the garden has ONE best friend - I think there are lots.  Mushrooms and other fungi are there, but so are beneficial insects, birds that eat harmful insects, frogs, lizards, and some snakes.  I do like that we look at gardening as a more and more complete picture, as opposed to just sticking things into dirt and adding chemicals to make them grow.  This past year I  have definitely thought more about mushrooms and other fungi, than before.

That's beautiful corn Annie.  I may buy some seeds.

Joan, that's a neat looking bug.  At least it looks like a VW bug.  I used to have several of them.  Would be fun to drive that way, what with all the stares & comments it would get.

Loved the car Joan. She herself seems to be happy with her present than the past.

And the corn too. Its beautiful.

Comment by Annie Thomas on January 19, 2013 at 11:17am

Sentient-  I can't remember the specifics, but I don't think it is edible.  I thought I would give it a try. If anyone has any tips on growing corn, I'd love to hear them!

Joan- The photo of the green car made me smile!  Thanks for sharing.

Annie,

That's the first I've seen of that corn.  No wonder there is high demand - that's beautiful!
