Beets.

Because you get the greens and the beets!

And Chard... because you keep clipping off leaves, and more grow back. All summer long.

Steam the above. Add some butter and salt, if you prefer. Wonderful!

Swiss chard is another I haven't tried....need to get busy with preparing these "new" vegetables!

Probably cucumbers. I grow a bush type. Even the ones I can purchase at the local farmer's markets don't compare to the ones fresh from the garden. When they are coming in, I'll eat 2 or 3 a day. I dream of them all winter.

The cucumbers were the only reason I didn't do a container garden this year. I don't know if I could get enough of them in containers.

I planted cucumbers in containers...they do quite well. Not too late to plant transplants!!

Tomatoes are constantly giving fruit, so they're the garden stars. For a late fall harvest though, oca is worth waiting for.
It tastes like a "lemon potato".

It's a tuber grown in New Zealand, but originally from South America. I think it's from higher elevations in Peru, but google would be the expert on that. At any rate, the taste is great. Only wish it were something you could harvest all summer long like tomatoes.

I usually grow heirloom tomatoes, but not this year.

I love my cherry tomatoes. They're lucky if they make it inside. It's like eating liquid sunshine!
