I've become enamored with figs. The fresh ones. Since we're not too far of a drive from Logee's, I thought I would see about growing a plant indoors. Then I googled growing figs indoors. Wandered over to Stark Bros. (they appear to be quick with replies in their Growing Guide forum) and they had all kinds of growing information. Which then led me to google what fruit trees you CAN grow indoors.

OK, this is a long way to go to say that I found an article in Reader's Digest that lists nine fruiting plants that do well indoors. Not sure about that grape vine...

For those of you who get antsy about getting out into the garden soil to dig and prune, one of these plants might make the winter more bearable - and we could have lovely harvest photos all winter long!

Ah...Zone 4B.
I think now is the time to plant garlic for next year. I also think you could plant snow peas and radishes for this year. There is probably some other stuff that doesn't much like heat that has time to mature this summer/fall.

taxy, the girl just moved a gazillion miles and has to set up a new house! Maybe she can send Shrek out to dig up the garden plot, though.

I was just sayin', in case PF had gardening urges. And the garlic has to go in this year, if she wants some next year.

Nice harvest, GG! Looks great.

Thanks for the link, CG - saved it to take a look at it this evening. I love figs, too...a friend has 2 fig trees in her back yard, and she's know around here for her fabulous home made fig bars. YUM!

I'm in the process of developing one of these. I think it will become quite popular during harvest time..

Me three, Rock! What a genus genius! After you get all sweaty gardening you don't have to go far for a cool.... Wait, we need to figure out a way to cool those babies on the branch.

We are in 4b and we just put in peas and new lettuce last week and we will cover it in a cold frame in the fall.
We grow garlic, it goes in in October for us. joysgarlic.com
If anyone wants garlic, let me know.
