Atthe end of the growing season in early January all

figswhich had increased in size to any great extent

werepruned back.

oflarge sweet fruit.

limitednumber of fruit which were excellent fruits

witha full rasberry center and a very sweet taste.

showedno substantial growth:

Anew planting of a Texas Everbearing, or as we

light-heartedlylike to refer to it as our "Texas

Overbearing",appears to be doing very well.

 

Weexpect to fertilize with chicken manure at the

beginningof the rainly season in late April/early

May.

 

Weexpect to submit our next report at the end of the

Rainyseason in late September/early October.
