My fig tree is bearing a ton of fruit this year. Fresh figs are so amazing - the newton is an abomination.
The castor beans have gone crazy too. The arbor is a work in progress - you can see one of the 8 upright posts, they look like trees but they are limbs cemented in the ground. 4 horizontal posts are in place so far, they need to be secured more securely and then I can continue with horizontal connecting posts. I could never have too many places to grow climbing plants.

I’m getting summer plants pulled wherever possible and starting fall/winter crops. I’m expanding my growing area again. I’ve prepared all of my growing areas by hand and with chickens and mulch - never used a tiller. It is slow going, but I only expand as I can handle it.
