I should have taken photos when I first got to the garden this morning and there were still some clouds. Also should have worn sunscreen.

Barely visible beans (edamame and yardlong var "stickless wonder"). Have not had bean success yet.


In the tent: red russian kale, snow pea shoots (dou miao), also some kohlrabi in the background


Something is eating things on the other side of the tent (young chinese cabbage, gai lan)


More in the tent: chinese celery


artichoke victory! the big one is on the counter waiting for my dinner.


The other plot; tomatoes (I am stringing them this year), brandywine and red cherry. Also some small hot peppers.


The out of control herb area. I've forgotten what everything is. There are some garlic, wormwood, catmint, horehound, and a few other things visible there. Not pictured are anise, tarragon, thyme, some more mint, rue, and half a dozen more things.


Strawberry patch. Got the first ripe berries today while weeding.


Land of the squash. Foreground, zucchini (left), baby hybrid kabocha (right). Distant background, blue hubbard (left), Indian tinda (right). Also some giant catnip and volunteer sunflowers.

Gardening is my passion before I got job. Since I work in the urban area and rent some apartment. Its difficult for me to plant seeds so I have now in balcony 2 potted tomatoes and a Bonsai. If I still have area to place for a flower pot. I would continue my flower potted plant.

Wow in the last week, my cucumbers have taken off like crazy! They have so many cucumbers now. And we have a TON of tomatoes. Also, our pumpkin seedlings came up, so we should have the perfect pumpkins right at Halloween. So excited!

My fiance planted beetberry, which seems to be doing pretty well. Has anyone had any experience with these plants?

We may get a frost tonight, and although I put covers over most everything, I thought I'd take photos in case there is mass slaughter.

Squashland, which has already been frost-kissed.  Pumpkins are visible lurking in the undergrowth. I'm not in charge of Squashland, one of the other gardeners set it up in the back corner of the community garden.


A baby hubbard, with about 10 lbs to go to full size. If it can make it until the end of the month, it might reach that goal.


The out of control herb area with bonus wildfire smoke plume.


Tomatoes, now tented for protection


I let a few of the late season artichokes go to bloom. This is the biggest one, probably 10" across:

I've had a mediocre year.  I saved a lot of pea seeds, only to discover that they had been invaded from the inside by some little black bug eating a perfectly round hole through a good number of them.  :/  oh well, the chickens appreciated them.
Also, the tomatoes don't want to ripen.  Out of like 16 plants, I've gotten 5 ripe tomatoes.  I think next year, I might try the early varieties again. 
The carrots are good.  Tiny, maybe an inch to 2 inches long, but good.  and I've got some winter stuff started, so we'll see if that's a better season for me this year.

I tried planting from seed once.  I bought a ready to plant pot with step by step instructions.  I followed the instruction very well.  I watered and took care of it.  It was my first time to plant and it didn't grow, not even one small leaf.  I guess I don't have what they call a "green thumb".

I have found that the seeds in those ready to plant pots tend to be duds, or just don't work. You should try again!

Alrighty people, new round this year, shall we? And I may even post something, too - although I am "only" container gardening on the balcony...

I am starting with this:
peas
tomatoes
bell peppers
strawberries
wild garlic
spinach
mint
basil
chives

My other herbs - parsley, oregano, thyme - got killed off "by accident" by the hubby when I was out of town for 5 days. Yes, 5 days :/

So what is everyone else up to this year?
