Let’s see how this effort goes.
Never heard of that even though it's apparently twice as old as Christianity. Pretty cool.

My experience with non full sun tomatoes is the plants will get leggy but still bear fruit. Just takes a bit longer to ripen. My tomatoes are over 6 feet tall right now. Between those and the okra it's gonna be a jungle by next month.

They look like they could be figs.

They seem to be a Chinese pear tree variety that are invasive to the USA. They even have these god awful 2” long thorns.

So I get home late a week ago to find this. I text pics to a few friends then I go in for a closer look. I don't remember a mater being there and the vine it was on was broke off. So I start looking futher up the plant to see where it broke off then I see a wire holding it to the cage. My dickhead roommate put it there from safeway. He got me it was funny

Heck I'd be embarrassed to post a pic of my 'garden'. It is a full on jungle right now.

I don't have the room anymore for veggies, but I love my ornamentals.
