Ok so here's a little background. I have a fig tree, a 15 - 20 ft giant fig tree, that grows giant figs. It came with the house, and i learned very quickly when i went to pick some that my fig tree was supporting the entire ecosystem of the neighborhood. Of the hundred of figs that came off of the tree, only about 20 were edible because apparently my fig tree had become the mecca of squirrels and birds far and wide.
So this year i am fighting back. I have several prototype fig-protecting contraptions. Netting won't work very well because the tree is 20ft tall and i don't have any netting. But my last line of defense is a Squirrel chasing terrier mix named Twink.
1st off this is what a fig looks like.
Prototype A1: Holds onions at the supermarket
Prototype C1: Chicken fencing that i bent into a fig cage and tied on with string
