How are you gardens doing? My snow peas and tomatoes are still yielding!

I live in the Eastern part of the San Francisco Bay Area. In Summer, this is a good area for growing corn, green beans, tomatoes, sunflowers, and other fairly standard garden goodies. But our Winters are interesting. It's usually in the upper 50s during the day here, dropping to the 30s or 40s at night. And then there's the occasional freeze, with temperatures dropping into the 20s at night. My standard Winter "crop" is snow peas, which are fairly cold-resistant, and yield until the Spring. But what's interesting this year is that my tomato plants are still going strong as well. I have a couple of new cherry tomatoes forming, and I'm hoping I'll be able to harvest them in a week or two. I munched a couple of snow peas yesterday. Does anything grow through the Winter where you are? The photo is of some Roma tomatoes I harvested out a Kaiser, where I do my notorious "illegal planting."

@TheHorse I've spent so much money on plants to make things look nice and then they come and destroy them. I know they're just doing what they do naturally, but they piss me off. If hunting were legal where I'm at I would have venison in my freezer
