Those pics are amazing! I'll post some of my own - I have to nab them from Instagram.
What are you growing this year? - Page 3
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Birds eye chilli
Long red chilli
Flat leaf parsley
And heaps more ive missed!
what an amazing round-up! particularly interested in Tahitian lime. what is that? I have enough trouble trying to keep my own lime tree from dying off. I had some carrots this year but they didn't get enough water. ;) I'm going to make roasted yellow-tomato soup tonight!
@chefbuba WOW! I only WISH I could grow anything half as gorgeous as that hothouse
Tomatoes and corn are doing well, beans so-so many got hit by grasshoppers. Cucumbers are trying but the cool weather has really slowed them down. Picked about half the radishes, first one got a quick rinse under the hose and eaten right in the garden. I love fresh picked radishes. Salad greens are finally taking off, hope they don't bolt right away when it gets hotter. Herbs look good, turnips look good and I have had a few meals of greens there too.
My first plant you guys! I'm not good at keeping things alive. Where I go, there is only death. Even my sourdough starter kicked it.
It is NOT purple basil. This is tía tô, a Vietnamese variety of Perilla. Different than shiso too.
Can't always find it for sale, so I'm growing my own. So far it's survived re potting and seems to be growing.
@MillionsKnives that is a gorgeous plant
what does it smell/taste like?
We are still waiting for warm weather. We haven't had but one 80 + day yet this summer.
Everything in the garden looks beautiful and healthy, but is just growing really slow.
Here it is going on the last week in July, and still no cukes, very few zucchini, and just flowers on the beans.
It's going to be crazy when everything ripens at once.....if it does that is.
Tomatoes are coming, but slow. Peppers are coming, but slow. Only flowers on the cukes so far but the plants are doing well. Hardly any raspberries at all, but the plants are going nuts. Winter squashes are coming along now, getting ready to flower.
Last year was a tough growing season because it was cooler than normal, but this year is the coolest summer I can ever remember. The weather has been incredible for everything except swimming or gardening.
Nice. It has been a less than stellar year for me so far. Had two tomato plants die, a green zebra and a black krim. Have yet to see any fruit on my white giant. And it looks like my second rosemary plant of the year is not long for this world. rosemary is pretty hardy, wonder why both plants died? Did pick my first jalapeno for last night's enchiladas.
Been picking lots of green beans, about the only thing other than lettuce that is producing. Roma tomatoes are loaded with 1 almost ripe, beefsteak are just first flowering. Sweet corn is struggling and the grasshoppers are taking a toll on the leaves. Turnips I planted for greens have been setting nice bulbs, about 2 inches now so not to long before I start to pick and freeze those.
I have just ordered a whole lot of seeds and one of my friends will bring them when he comes to visit.
Lots of obscure chili peppers types. If they all take, i will have enough chili's and chili paste to feed the whole valley
I ordered szechuan and normal pepper (black pepper) as well. We will see.
One problem is that the birds have discovered my little chili patch, so I am contemplating building a little shade house. Possibly later this year.
Ans in one of the entries above, it is mentioned that weed is so invasive: around here it is actually a difficult herb to grow. Hopefully it takes of this time!

I have a sunny garden, so it is to hot for most snails, even in my 6 inch mulch.
But in the past I have use some of these tricks on this link.
