Ernesto, you suck
This morning The Wife and I woke up to discover that the combination of rain and wind from the remnants of Ernesto may have wiped out our small collection of fruit trees. I noticed that one of our largest apple trees and the fig tree (which was full of figs) were leaning at a 45 degree angle. The Wife went out to move the bench out of the hosta (and keep it from ending up in the pond) and determined that the fig tree had split at the base. SHIT. At this point there is nothing we can do until the wind and rain stop. I'll have a look tomorrow and see if we can save the apple. I think the fig is done.
