I prune the roots every 2 years. At the least, you should prune every 3 years. Any of you on Figs4fun?

I am not currently on Figs4fun, but it sounds familiar.

Here are some Figsnotforfun.

At least it kept them away from the tomatoes! That rat is gone now, RIP.

I have a very dumb question... why after only 1 day after harvest, my figs shrink to half their size? Does it matter that I have them sitting on my counter?

I don't notice any shrinkage on mine, even after overnight on the counter. Could it be your variety?
