fig tree cutting, flatbush dark on Flickr.

Fig cutting, age 2 months old. On the eve of planting our fig trees, I thought I would post some photos of how the roots look after being in NYC tap water for 2 months. Not every cutting looks as healthy as this one. But they are looking less and less like a stick each day…I plan to put some of these early rooters into soil in the next few weeks.
