Many small figs, but they don't grow and ripen

I have a Brown Turkey fig that I grow in a container. I keep it in the garage over the winter, so it never dies back. Each year, it puts on hundreds of figs, but the figs stay small, hard, and green and never ripen. The tree is on my patio and gets full sunlight all day. Any idea why the tree would be doing exactly what it's supposed to do (putting on a fig for every leaf), but the figs never ripen? I usually have a tree full of figs by late May then they stop growing. It's not a matter of not enough time before a frost. These figs start early in the season and then stop growing once they reach a certain size. The tree continues to grow new shoots and put on new leaves and new figs, but I just can't understand why they stop growing and maturing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

They are emerging from my floor boards. They move by squirming their body in a U-shape and straight again.

arborvitae brown tips

My arborvitae I just noticed this spring has patches of brown all over. I don't remember seeing this a month ago when I added 3 inches of compost around them. Could the compost have anything to do with this? We had a lot of rain...

What kind of spider is this.

We are concerned this may be a brown recluse. We sighted it on our front door around 6:30 PM today. Sorry for the fuzzy smartphone photo.
