Get the Dirt!

Figgery Figloo Winter Greenhouse for Mountain Fig Trees

Posted on



Last night it was 10 degrees F outside the greenhouse and 43 degrees F inside the “figloo”. As the winter proceeds I will continue to check on the temperatures and observing the condition of the figs, as well as the perennial kale and artichokes that are also under the insulation of the figloo. I'll be writing more about the details of this system, including all the techniques that are being used to hopefully keep the fig tree trunks alive until spring.
