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.

Below in the picture, the row (right) is growing Cushaw, butternut, Acorn squash. On the left, Apple gourds, hidatsa Bean, and pumpkin plants are growing in containers.

 Cucumbers, yellow squash, and zucchini are still growing.

Cleaned out old pumpkin vine and squash plants, then planted Peas to grow along trellis.

 Harvested cabbage, broccoli, onion and cleaned out plants, then sowed peas in the two rows from the left.
