What are you harvesting from your garden?

My tomatoes have been flowering for the past week or so, and I went out today to check on all of the little guys and found a little green tomato! It looks like there are a few other flowers that are falling and that should be showing little greenies in a couple of days. I'm so excited! I will probably finish the last store bought tomato this week, so I'll be able to eat fresh ones with flavor in another couple of weeks. I've been snipping herbs and have gotten a couple of hot cherry peppers, already. What have you harvested already from your garden? What will you be harvesting in the next couple of weeks?

I have mostly planted herbs and they are growning very well. I have cilantro, basil, Rosemary and mint growing right now. The Mint espeically grows like a weed so I have been adding it to salads. The cilantro is the same way. I get afternoon sum on my little balconey where they are all planted, and I think that helps. I would like to try to go a vegatable of some sort. I think I will need to get another large pot for them though.

Sounds tasty. I think herbs are always a necessary thing to have growing. Even if you don't use them, they smell so good! What sort of veggie are you thinking of? Some of the patio tomatoes are really easy to grow containerized; peppers are really easy; and beans are kind fun. :)

Actually we were thinking about beans. I like the idea of them trailing all over the place. But pepper and tomatos are tempting too. I think I need a bigger patio!

I plant cucumber on the balcony. Now they are flowering. Last summer, we got more than 20 from a single pot.

Wow! That's a lot of cucumbers. I forgot to get my cucumber plants started in time, this year, but I'll definitely remember next year. Hope your harvests are as bountiful this year!

I live in Texas and my tomatoe plants are rocking! They are full of green tomatoes and they are still blooming. I am so excited to start harvesting my own tomatoes. Much cheaper than buying from the store since the gas prices have gone up so much!

I can't wait until mine ripen, either! I've got about twenty little greenies, now, and go out daily to count them. Luckily, they're rockin', too, and are growing crazy fast.

Ive got a lot of brinjals from my garden. the brinjals were so soooo good. I have tomato plants but tomatoes are yet to come up . But my papaya tree has a lot of small fruit. I just cant wait for all my papayas to ripen.

I just planted some tomatoes and peppers today, so I think it's going to be awhile. Interestingly enough though one of the little pepper plants already has a small pepper growning on it.

My peppers grow kind of wildly. I don't know if I've got them in a good place or what, but they're covered with flowers! Hopefully, some of them pepper. I always love to see the little transplants at the store with a lone tomato or pepper growing -- looks like you got one of those. :)

I've got a good ways to go before I have anything to harvest. Where are you located that you are seeing the fruits of your labors already? I'm in south/central Ohio and we're still planting here. I've got few things in the small area alongside the house, and a few more in containers, but the baby bunnies got all my beans that were in containers low enough for them to reach, so I've go to start over on a lot of those.

I live in the Atlanta, GA area. I also started my plants inside, so they had a pretty nice jump on things. :) So far, the bunnies have left everything of mine alone, which kind of surprises me. The chipmunks, however *growl*

I would say you are not from around here. We only just stopped going below zero at night here. I think it's going to be another couple of months before I will be harvesting anything from our backyard garden. Well maybe not. I just looked out my office window and I guess the Rhubarb is getting pretty big now. So I suppose I could go out and harvest some early Rhubarb. That makes me feel much better now. :)

I'm thinkin' you'd be right. :) It's been in the 60-90F range for a couple of months, here. I envy your rhubarb, though! It doesn't do well at all in Georgia, and it's so expensive to buy in stores.

I harvested chillies, tomatoes, chinese veggies, indonesian veggies. i have a small garden and i harvest only a little of them. it's good to cook veggies from our own garden though. they are fresher and a lot fun to harvest.. :)

Yum! What Indonesian and Chinese veggies are you growing? I've been looking into 'Asian' vegetables, and haven't really gotten a good idea of what to plant yet. Homegrown are always so much tastier, you're right!
