Then our winter killed it back to the roots. We won't have an abundant crop this year but we will have figs. At first I thought I had killed it but the one I did not trim died back to the roots also.
This past week I decided to trim it back. There were plenty other plants mixed with it. The wisteria which Dad planted and wished he never had, the Virginia Creeper and Granny's rose bush had made quite the stand here.
All the dead limbs were removed plus all the invaders. I used some of these for stakes for other plants. Then I burned! The joy of seeing all your hard work reduced to ash that will feed the ground is indescribable. Maybe I just like fire.
I had some help
and some more help.
I decided to weed my water garden
and clean all the climbing vines so you could see the fence.
I'm gonna have to quit
This is too much work.
Only three more corners to clean.
