    Good morning from Lexington! How are the figs working out? Do you bring them indoors for the winter or mulch heavily instead? I'd love to have figs but haven't tried growing them yet so I'd be thrilled to hear more about your attempts since we're in the same area.

    Congrats on being farmer of the day. I too have containers in the front and five rasied garden beds in the backyard.

    Have a great farmer of the day.
