Daily Farm Pics – June 24th, 2009

Our backyard fig tree had developed a rust fungus. The only solution was to completely defoliate the tree. I did this a few weeks ago and we already have new leaves growing. The little tree will be just fine but I doubt we will get any figs from it. We did get to eat our first homegrown fig just the other day. It was big and juicy with a perfectly sweet taste. We’re excited about growing more!
