GreenFin Music

I like to play guitar and write songs, but I haven't been able to do so for the past 2+ years because I've been so busy, tired, and sore from all the farm work involved with the fig propagation project I've been doing for the fig community.

Last week I decided that had to change, so I set aside about 5 hours (which really just equated to playing late at night and losing more sleep), and was able to create a short demo album of 9 songs.  Time was in short supply, so the songs are mostly just 1st-take rough drafts and many lack lead guitar tracks, but they still convey the gist of what I hear in my head each day as I work.

Here's one that I wrote for my Dad:



If you want to check out the rest of the album, you can listen to the songs free at https://jameswesleysperman.bandcamp.com/releases 


Fig Farm Tour - video

A friend from up the road stopped by and made a video of his field trip; you can watch it below.  It'll give you a nice look around and show you how things are doing right now.


[from the video--"Was that the one the mice got?" -- yes, two tubs of Ponte Tresa fig trees were eaten, and half grew back, but half died; the tub I was hiding with my hand was the sad tub with the dead Ponte Tresa trees.]

SHIPPING UPDATE:  I'm shipping the overdue tree orders right now and am aiming to get them all shipped out by the end of this spring.  I apologize again to everyone for the long wait.

Rooting Cups

If you need to root some cuttings, clear rooting cups make the process easy and fun. Whether it's figs, flowers, citrus, or any other rootable cutting, these rooting cups can help.

Clear rooting cups are also great to use for starting seeds. Not only do they allow you to monitor root development at a glance, they help promote strong rootballs that will pay dividends when it's time to up-pot or plant them in the ground.

The cups are available at RootingCups.com
