Anyone harvest any of their homegrown veggies yet?

Still waiting on everything here... everything grows so slow up in the mountains where it's not so hot.
Just glad my kitties are keeping the voles away.

  • I've picked about 5 lbs of San Marzano tomatoes; I hate them btw. I nearly burned all our tongues off with our first habanero. I've also picked a ton of serranos, jalapeños, chili picins, and lots of herbs.

    I'm waiting for my first eggplant. It's almost ready.

  • Raspberries, snow peas, bok choy, potatoes, already harvested. Would have had cherries, but someone stole all the cherries off of my 2 trees. Zucchini is close to being ready. Cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, tomatillos, eggplant,  are coming along. Celery, cardoon, celeriac, apples, apricots have a long way to go. My 2 plum trees didn't produce any fruit this year.

  • I don't have a garden but my friends brought me a bushel of veggies and blackberries, raspberries and homemade strawberry jam. :)

  • We don't have our own garden, but have benefited from the generosity of those who do. My mom gave us some of her green beans (that looked yellow, but were yummy) And a co-worker of my husb's gave us zucchini which my husb. fried & ate for his dinner last nite. The rhubarb from her garden was given to my mom & made into a delicious pie :)

  • My husband would love to grow okra, but it's not hot enough here

  • I don't have a garden anymore, but I was given some delicious rhubarb by an elderly church member who doesn't bake anymore, and I ate a few of her strawberries while the sun was still in them. Nummy nummy!

  • I've had about a handful of tomatoes. There are a lot of flowers on my cucumber plants, the beefsteak tomatoes are growing, the peppers are looking good and the basil looks ok.

  • Music, how hard is it to grow snow peas? My dd wants to next year and I'm clueless about them. Idk if they even grow here.
