Well certainly not as much as most of you: We grow:

lots of herbs
tomatoes
beans
cukes
squash
bell peppers
jalapeno peppers
serano peppers this year.

So far, due to the lack of sunshine, the cooler than normal temps and all the rain, we have more green leaves than actual veggies.I do see lots of pepper blossoms and a few peppers.The same with the tomatoes and I pick herbs every day. In fact I am about to pick some tarrogon and thia basil for our roasted turnips tonight.

I'm in an apartment, so my gardening is very limited: cherry tomatoes, parsley, cilantro.

We have two bags of potatoes, all grown from peelings or eyes.
Three tomato varieties, one determinate, two indeterminate.
A small pot with two pea plants and some beet greens.
One Cubanelle pepper.
Both green and yellow bush beans.


All grown in containers! Except for the wild blackberries and grapes from which I make preserves.

Lost my chive plant that we had for years, but have yet to replace it

I have two veggie gardens, one out at the family camp about 35 miles away, and one here at my house.

The one at my house is small, only a few tomato plants scattered among my flowers as well as a zucchini, some onions for salads, basil, and a cherry tomato plant in tubs/planters. I also have chives and oregano that sort of grow wild as they self-seed. I also have some black and red raspberries as well as some currants.

In my country garden, this year I'm raising 5 varieties of 3 types tomatoes (regular, cherry, and plums), 3 varieties of sweet peppers, swiss chard, spinach, lettuce, okra, peas, green beans, dill, sweet corn, and pumpkins. I'll do multiple plantings of spinach, lettuce, green beans, and sweet corn. Since I have some onion sets left over, I'll plant those this week. I'm also going to try growing tomatillos this year as I found a 4 pack at a local nursery.

I have to protect this garden with an electric fence to prevent predation by deer, raccoons, and rabbits.

With 20 zucchini plants, 80 tomatoes, and 40 bell peppers...if you really put up all the produce, you are going to have enough veggies for the next 20 years.
