The trials and tribulations of one Kentucky gardener…


Global Warming?

Ok here it is late November and one of the in-ground figs still has leaves. Our average first frost is a month gone. We have had a few light frosts but not enough to take out these die hards.

Now to be fair the fig IS on the south side of the house and there IS a largish bush nearby to offer some protection but it does seem a little late. The container figs have lost their leaves weeks ago.

The jalapeño peppers I picked yesterday are pretty late though. They were grown in a half barrel on the back patio by the north-west corner of the house. They are currently seeded and in a water soak waiting to become hot poppers. mmmmm

Jalapeño peppers picked in late November.

    Just discovered your blog while doing some research about gardening in Kentucky. I love reading what you have to say. Any chance you are in northern Kentucky/Cincy area? I am in charge of planning our garden club’s speakers, and would be interested in talking to you about talking to us. Is it something you would be interested in?

    I saw your notes about growing figs in KY. I am in Lexington and interested in starting figs outdoors. Can you give an update on how your figs have been doing? Have you determined what kind you have?
