Beekeeping, Gardening and Quilting in Eastern Wake County, North Carolina

It seems mighty early to have figs but I sure do - lots of them on the bush.  The weather here has been warmer than usual this spring.  It seems we hardly had a winter but the last frost date for our area is April 15.  I sure hope we don't get a hard frost but in Eastern North Carolina any kind of weather is possible.  Lots of rain yesterday and we had some hail late in the afternoon.

I'm trying to root some figs too - we'll see what happens.  Behind the fig cuttings is dwarf mondo grass that I dug up and divided.  It's a great filler between pavers but mighty expensive if you need a lot.
