Ripe Van Winkle

 Some of the leaves on my fig tree have started turning yellow and falling off. However the fruits look the same as they did a month ago. According to one Internet article, the tree is either getting too much water or not enough. Another article suggested fertilizer. Yet another suggested mulch.

I watched a video in which a man removed the leaves from one side of his fig tree to make the fruit on that side ripen faster. His Brown Turkey figs were much larger than mine. I’m willing to remove a few leaves and give the tree extra water to see what happens.

In the most recent Einstein Simplified podcast, I talked a little about my fig problem. It led to an improv scene about composting. You can listen by pressing the play button, if you so desire.
