Late fig

how our fig tree is late this year compared to previous years

We were eating figs this time last year, but Winter damage slowed things down.

I'm guessing it's still going to be another week or two before the first one ripens.

Where are your figs located on your property? Are they in the ground or in a pot that gets moved into a greenhouse? It's so windy where I am that I have my fig in a pot which I bring inside, but I'm thinking I'm doing something wrong because last year I finally got one tiny fig bud on the tree (which fell off at some point before it was ripe) and this year - nothing. I'm thinking maybe it's in too shady of a spot despite its having lots of leaves. Any suggestions?
