Tomatoes and peppers

Various herbs:
pineapple sage
citronella-scented geranium

some flowers and ferns

I got off to a late start, there is still much to be done.

I also used to be a lot more adventurous with the vegie garden, but now mostly just grow stuff that I know we'll actually use.
In the fall I might try some lettuce.

Excuse me ... why wasn't 'weeds' on the list? Because I grow them every year and I grow them quite well ... along with the other stuff.

This year I'm growing weeds. Hope next year I will have large garden instead of weeds.

None of the above! We have 39, 30 year old, standard size apple trees and two elderly peach trees and those take up way too much of my time to even consider growing anything else. Everything else we harvest is wild: blackberries, grapes, black cherries, chestnuts. There is also some wild asparagus, but I don't know what to do with it, as it is nothing like the domestic kind. We do trade apples, cider and various fruit jelly for other produce, though.

We also have a very impressive, very large, weed farm going. I can count at least 12 different kinds out there. If anyone needs some weeds, this is the place to come. Bulk discounts available.

None of the above. But currently I have the following;

Numerous hostas
Asian lilies (red and orange in color and in full bloom right now)
Day lilies in which I need to split and spread out (they are yellow and about to bloom)
Radiant Crab Apple Tree
2 holly bushes that the landscapers planted. They look like crap, and I'm ready to dig them out.
Cannas that will bloom in the late summer with bright red flowers, and will be dug up in the fall.
Petunias, white, red, purple, and pink.
A White Bird of Paradise in which I will need to dig up, and pot, as it is a tropical plant and not cold hardy.
1 rose bush
