Our fig tree pictured on the right must be at least 60 feet tall. See its size compared to my car on the far bottom left.

Of course that seems exactly the same as the advice at ehow
My plan is to dry them in my car which gets nice and hot in the driveway on these sunny warm days. We will see if that works!
