Three kinds of peppers - I have never seen so many peppers as this year. A few squash. Tons of marigolds, while not a vegetable I think you can make something out of them - I have a million even after it frosted. Weather here was totally out of wack so the tomatoes did not do well.

I have one tomato on my plant. and it's still putting out blossoms. I'm going to leave the plant in the pot until the frost kills it.

From what I planted in August and September I'm getting lots of green beans and have tons of tomatoes, if they'll ever ripen. We've had more banana peppers than we can eat, and jalapenos, too, but they're not hot at all. We've started harvesting cucumbers and the snow peas are finally taking off. Broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage are all growing, but I don't think they're getting enough sun, because they're leggy. Two heads of lettuce are struggling along, but I don't think they're getting enough sun either. I also have a bit of cilantro and basil and lots of oregano and rosemary.

I cut down the tomatoes but left them in their pots. Rosemary, various delectable mints, thyme.

Lots of wild mushrooms. Probably deadly/hallucinogenic.

I kept tomatoes, squash, and peppers alive by irrigating overnight till about a week ago, when I missed one night that got just a bit colder than I expected. This did get me 3 or 4 additional squash (yellow crookneck) that I would not have had if I let the first frost kill everything, maybe got some tomatoes further along towards vine-ripe than otherwise.

Still have 4 nice heads of cabbage growing away.

Northeast Florida:

Meyers lemons and key limes are ripening, and some kind of grapefruit.

Still have many tomatoes and peppers, but it got down to 40 last night.
Once the sun comes up, it gets very warm, but they might not be able to set fruit anymore.

The basil is slowing down.

The parsley is just getting started again after going dormant when the heat of summer became too much. I'll have it all winter. Same with the culantro, a relative of cilantro.
Plenty of oregano, rosemary, marjoram, and thyme.

Have a pot of mesclun lettuce coming up.

It's not a vegetable, but I'm astounded that my Dragon's Blood begonia in hanging baskets on my deck is still beautiful and blooming. I just cut a bunch for my Thanksiving centerpiece. I've been waiting for it to get zapped by the frost so I can save the corms, but despite the fact that we've had a frost and it even snowed today, it keeps on keeping on.
I highly recommend this plant. I thought all begonias were very tender, but this seems to be fairly tough.
