Do you have a vegie garden? What have you got growing at the moment? What's starting to sprout and what's being harvested?

Sadly I do not have a 'veggie garden', not enough room :(
Can you grow things in pots?
Good idea. What about a vertical garden?

All of my garden is in pots. I rent, so that way everything comes with me when I move! Plus it makes it easy to move plants as I change what's in them, or to adjust to conditions.
Various kinds of lettuce, pigeon peas, marigolds, comfrey, wormwood and borage (not veggies, but beneficial plants so we have them in the veggie patch to attract bees and repel pests etc.), purple radishes, bird's eye chillis, dandelions and chrysanthemums (for the leaves), cape gooseberries, pepino melons, golden pearl berries, garden huckleberries cherry tomatoes, yellow capsicums and pumpkins. Not all of this is actually producing fruit and veggies we can eat yet but hopefully it will soon.
We'll be planting soon, we have to hold back a bit here to make sure the last of the frosts have passed. Our cheery tree is covered in pretty pink and white blossoms, we just plucked the last of the apples, the herb garden is waking up, and within a week we'll be sorting out the hothouse for a year of tomatoes, and digging the side garden beds for spinach, beans, potatoes, peas, lettuce and anything else that takes our fancy. I LOVE this time of year!
Sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, thyme and rosemary. Just restarting the garen

This year we grew peppers, tomatoes, various salad leaves, carrots, beans, and spring onions. The spring onions and carrots were only tiny, so didn't do that well, our red peppers didn't turn red, and remained green. Our green beans and tomatoes have done well though.
I don't have a garden at home
The rental property we moved into earlier this year had a vegie patch set up. I've never had much luck growing anything but I decided to give it a go! Prepared the soil and I've now got: silverbeet (grown from packet seed), cherry tomatoes (some from packet seed and some just randomly popping up!), peas (seed), spring onions (grown from off cuts of store bought bunch), mint (from a cutting from mum and dad's garden), Pumpkin (seed from a store bought pumpkin), basil (seedling from the markets), corn (seedlings from Big W as well as some seedlings grown from packet seed), capsicum (seeds from store bought fruit), strawberries (store bought seedling), broccoli (seed packet), pineapples (from the tops of fruit from the markets) and some lettuce stuff (seed packets). - not everything is fruiting yet - although we have been harvesting spring onions, tomatoes, basil and silverbeet regularly for a few weeks. I LOVE my garden!! Best thing is that the owner said I can expand if I would like and take as much space as I want. I plan to plant sweet potato and ginger for the wet season.
There are a few plants growing in my garden. Some of these are sweet potatoes, Okra, lemon grass, pineapples, melon, red peas and papaya. I will plant more soon.
kale (for my rabbits), parsley, asian mint and 3 very sad looking snow pea sprouts
