Fairly mild winter except for a few isolated weather events, one of which saw 1 degree F and a couple others in the mid single digits. That's about as cold as I ever remember. All exposed growth that died was pruned off. The good news is, all growth under the grass piles survived and is now pushing out growth.
Every variety in-ground survived. The following photo's aren't all but just a few to get a look under the grass which was pulled aside. Many of the new shoots are lacking green due to being in the dark but they'll green up quickly now.
New ID tags were also placed today.
I learned something about dry grass clippings these past few months. They stay dry under the surface of the pile, even after substantial rain events. A sort of matting forms on the surface and the water runs off. This is good for winter protecting figs.
Here's a couple of garage kept potted figs, just because I like how they look. Warm late winter caused them to wake up early and so they have been shuffled in and out of the garage many times already. Hope spring is nice to us!
