I still have small tomatoes and parsley.

My lebanese cucumbers, and radish are just beginning to sprout from seeds, so I do not have anything "new" to eat from my garden at the moment.

I hope to have soon.as also planted beetroot today, though that is quite slow. I also have a different variety of spinach coming up from last summer even though I did not replant this, but not yet ready to eat.

I have heaps of stuff!

The apple trees are blooming, the plum and cherry trees are too. We have beans and peas galore, and herbs, tomatoes, zucchinis, pumpkins, and lettuce. I'm about to do a second seed planting too so give it a couple of weeks and it'll be going crazy out there!
Yours in Qld though arent you -up North? Where it is always warm?

I have tomatoes everywhere,and the passionfruits are coming in now.I have more herbs than I can count or use,so I share these with my neighbours in return for his luscious limes!! And we have more mangoes than even the possums and Fruit bats can consume!! Unfortunately the babanas still have a long way to go before eating.I will also have capsicums shortly,though I have no snpow peas this year after a huge clean-up lof my whole yard .
I have a few plants growing in my garden. I have sweet potatoes, okra and sweet peppers.
I don't at the moment, but I would love to get back into gardening and growing my own vegetables.
I wish! We don't have a garden

I was going to ask this exact question lol! I'm in Cairns and run my crops according to "dry season' or "wet season". I'm hoping that my dry season stuff will finish up soon! We are still picking more yellow grape tomatoes than we can possibly eat and I have mint, spring onions, basil, and mustard seed sprouts that I am picking regularly. Have a couple of pumpkin vines growing from my compost heap that have been flowering prolifically - so hoping I'll have pumpkins soon! I have a couple of baby capsicums that will be ready to pick in a few weeks. I'm putting in corn seedlings regularly and hoping to plant sweet potato soon. I LOVE gardening!
but lizzi -that is cheating living in Cairns as you do not have cold winters, do you?? so then everything grows anytime
by Finy
LOL yep! I grew tomatoes, basil, silverbeet, corn and mint in the dead of winter! It's great!!
by lizzi
Only herbs. Strawberries soon.
Yes, we have mint, parsley, rosemary and oregano. The possums have eaten everything else!
We have two orange trees (one old one and one newly planted one), tomatoes and carrots. We also have back yard chickens so we can have fresh eggs.
Not much. A tiny butternut pumpkin, half a dozen kumquats and 2 tomatoes.
Up until recently I had lovely silver beet sprouting up randomly all over the garden, until a well-meaning gardener pulled it up and fed it to my chickens. Not only did they gobble it up, but the next time I let them out of their coop, they ran straight to the vege bed and started eating all the silver beet in there too! Lesson learned.
Mulberry tree & Mango tree. Have had a dozen big 'bullock hearts' from mango! Yum, icy cold!
Cumquat, star fruit & mulberry trees. All bearing fruit in season!
Mulberries, potatoes, spinach, pumpkin, tomatoes, parsley, onions, chives, mushrooms.
A large crop of endive, mint, parsley, marjoram, corriander, basil, lemons and shallots. Can't wait to sew tomatoes and usual summer veggies. I freeze the excess spinach and kale as that's enjoyed all year round.
I have a variety of herbs, love to go and clip fresh herbs while cooking
Its a veritable bounty. Rhubarbs, Cherry toms, bok choy, choy sum, French white onions and a glory box of herbs that have thrived with this wetter period. My Japanese celery is exploding as is the sorrel. We love green-leaf variety for our daily salad needs, all housed in the children's former sand pit, now a no-dig treasure -house of never fatigued production.
No, nothing since my small rosemary bush died on me a couple of years ago! Oh I guess we could eat the couple of little violets(in a salad) that haven't died yet, but I like looking at them, when I walk past them. They just came up by them selves at some stage.

I've just found this question again, & we now have 3 very small pots of herbs, (still no rosemary) & 2 small red tomatoes, in a small pot, on 1 skinny looking plant!
by Miro
At present we have garlic, mint, rosemary, lemons, walnuts which will be ready soon, almonds,apricots.
