Rabbits are so sweet, cute and lovable. Right? Everyone wants one to own as a pet since they’re so innocent and couldn’t hurt a fly if it tried. That’s only if you own them as domesticated pets. Not such the case with the monstrous wild rabbits who are on a survival mission to eat anything in sight that has nutritional value and to be food for the cute foxes. I’ll leave the foxes out of this story since they seem to be the guardians of the fig trees.
As you know, I love fig trees when they produce their sweet bounty of figs, though occasionally I come into hardships along the way just so that I can have a good harvest by the Fall season. I’ve spent years growing my trees and I’d hate to lose a tree that I spent years growing to reach a fruitful age. There are challenges to growing them in the Northeastern US in USDA zone 7a. With these challenges, I like to share my fig tree survival techniques so that you too can have the success as I have.
