Winterizing fig trees

OK,if you grow figs (What?!! You don't grow figs?!!), the time is coming soon to have to wrap and winterize your fig trees in many areas.

Besides for fresh eating, I use figs in cooking a lot. Now my fig trees have gown to be too big and too horizontal and getting very difficult to wrap. I am reshaping the trees using jacks from my shop. Each day I give each jack a little turn so that I don't crack and break the branches. I think I should be able to get all the branches to be vertical and I will be able to wrap them to be less than 12 inches columns.

Good winter protection means greater harvest next year. It fig ures. :-)
