Chanterelle mushrooms from the woods!


Lightly cook with a little oil and salt after removing dirt and washing. Steam mushrooms and serve over noodles, rice, sandwich, or anything!

Pears, Figs, Cape Gooseberries, Toms, & Squash Growing

As the summer comes to a close, and after enjoying Peaches from the trees this summer, I have pears and figs continuing to grow. In the pictures below, you see the progress on the two pears growing on one of the trees, and there are many figs producing off of the two Chicago Hardy fig trees. In a future video, I will show you the progress on the Figs.




In the pictures here, cape gooseberry plants are growing in containers. The seeds were saved from a couple of fruits that were purchased from Whole Foods. The fruit's husk looks like a lantern and the flowers resemble that of Okra blooms.
