This past winter global warming killed the Fig Tree planted at the beginning of the garden.

The Fig came back as a bush, but you read about that back in Bad News, Good News back in June. A couple weeks ago, I pruned the Fig Bush to force growth to the figs instead of growing the branches. This seems to have worked, don't expect a bountiful harvest, but some will be nice.

Here is the first tomato, I have to pick them when they show some color, the squirrels like them, and put them in the ripening basket. The plum tomatoes have been disappointing, first time for them.
