For me it is bell peppers, chillies, egg plant, peas, beans, spinach, radishes, lettuce,zuchinni and loads of herbs. Not bad considering that we are in the middle of the worst winter over here (South African Lowveld) in years and have had FROST!

I harvested my VERY FIRST tomato and Anaheim pepper... very exciting!

My cucumbers are just starting to look like cucumbers... bell peppers and zucchini are still just flowers...

Pumpkin leaves look a little sick (hope it doesn't die)...

I'm having them for breakfast in cereal, for lunch, in my salads, for supper, in my sauces, and for snacks right off the vines!!!! Oh and don't forget desserts, black raspberry shortcakes, berry pies, and black raspberry smoothies!!! OMG!!! They are almost at the end. I have picked for 2 1/2 weeks now! They are 3 weeks ahead of normal, though. emoticon (i know this is grapes, but it is the closest thing I could find! emoticon )

Our daikon radishes as well as spinach are finished now. They were wonderful & I'll try to figure out how to upload a pic. later. (They took much more space than we were thinking though . . . so we're learning. . .) Our lettuce is in.
We've had things coming in slowly and 1 or two at a time. (ie Roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, strawberries, & carrots). . . heirloom tomatoes aren't ready. Broccoli & green onions are struggling. Peppers, asparagus, eggplant, and watermelon are developing SLOWLY.

We really don't know what we're doing though. This is our first garden, and we're just excited to see that things ACTUALLY grow. Now, we're at the stage to begin to plan for dealing with rabbits, planting in a "thoughtful way", moving to the ground vs. our planter boxes and using a larger portion of our backyard to make this happen. It's ALL exciting and it's all GOOD.

Nancy003 - that scripture reference that you have listed when your posts come up really jumped out at me today. I am writing it down to read daily. So glad it was on your post!

I am harvesting lots of zucchini and yellow squash, cucumbers some cherry tomatoes, kale, cabbage and beets. The carrots are close and I can't wait till the beans get going, my mouth is watering for them!

Has anyone ever grown parsnips? I put some in and they are very small. I think they are a fall harvest? I also heard you have to "let them sweeten" and I am not sure how you do that.
