Hi Friends! I'm Kim Tien, I live in Seattle, WA is also known as Pacific Northwest (PNW). In the Spring of 2018, I ate my first fig sold at my local market. It was a black mission fig, it was so good I had to see if I could grow a fig tree. I came across Ben Nguyen's Fruit Adventures website, he is a local fig collector in my area. His blog and his youtube channel were so helpful. Now three years later, I call myself a fig addict. My son Long, who is five, and I have a fruit growing channel where we review all the fruits we grow and review figs that have fruited for us. If you like my articles and enjoy our kids gardening youtube channel please subscribe. If you are a local please get in touch! We always enjoy meeting other fig growers in the area! Thank you!
