I have one brown and one black fig tree, both o/a 2 feet tall. All greenery but no figs this year. I kept them watered and feed them Fruit Trees Alive. Shall I expect figs next year? Also, I plant black and jumbo peanuts. I plan to use the same raised beds every year and each Spring I add gypsum and organic humus and manure to the soil and during the summer I sprinkle the leaves with land plaster. Should I do anything else?

Prince George's County Maryland fruit vegetables figs and peanuts

Unless your figs were greatly protected from last years winter weather, it was too cold for figs. Many lost their plants all the way to the ground. If this winter is more mild, you could expect figs next summer.
You sound like you are doing the right things for the peanuts. They are long season crop and not many Marylander's grow them.
