Jounal September 5, 2015 - One more tropical
Historically, they have been around since the dinosaurs, one of mankind's first cultivated plants, even before wheat and barley.
Even in the few days I have had the plants, I can see new growth. Usually, plants that have been deprived of light in transit for a few days take sometime to recover, not these though.
Coincidentally, the local Trader Joe's outlet had a sale on fresh Black Mission figs over the weekend. We had never eaten fresh figs, so we purchased and tried a package. They are really good, and are supposed to be very good for you besides.
The larger tree, on the left side of the photo, third from the front, is a Brown Turkey fig tree. That is the tree that was lost for a few days in the postal system. Several of the bottom leaves had turned yellow and had to be removed, however, I can already see new growth, so I guess there was no real harm to the tree.
