Who Has a Vegetable Garden?
I just spent the day tending to my tomatoes, peppers, garlic, onions, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, and various other veggies. It got me thinking, who else on this forum has a vegetable garden, and what do you grow?

Put in a very large garden again this year. Thirty-six tomato plants, 300 linear feet of green beans, lima beans, zucchini, cucumbers, watermelon, cantaloupe, sweet yellow peppers, bell peppers, and cabbage. Bought one of those All American caners that will do 14 quarts at one time. That will save me a tremendous amount of time canning this year.
Between the torrential rain / flooding, rabbits, deer and bug damage, I'll probably harvest 40-50% of what I planted. Because of it's size, there's no way I can keep the weeds and grass at bay in the rows with the vegetables, it's a race between them.
Going to have a good crop of peaches, apples and black berries this year too, if the plague of those nasty beetles don't show up again this year. Last year there were thousands of them destroying my fruit trees. So far so good?
One strange thing this year, half my tomato plants are about three feet high, big and bushy with no tomato's on them yet. The other half are maybe one foot tall with tomato's the size of golf balls, strange? All Better Boy tomato's.
P.S. Who would ever guess deer / rabbits like slip onions and jalapeno plants to boot?
I think, therefore I am...

We have a garden garden and hydroponics. Hydronpics does 60 cabbage, tomato, herbs, lettuce,brocolli, and spinach, and green beans. Garden has carrots, arugla, peppers. We are switching to mostly hydropinics when I get back to TX. I am going to expand the greenhouse to hold about 100 plants.

Just a small garden with a few tomatoes, and some Habanero, Jalapeno, and Ghost peppers.
That's just about all. Weak, I know but hey, it just didn't happen this year.

I put in a couple of tomatoes and one zucchini. Oh, also some Cilantro but the darn rabbit ate it down to nubs.
I have a small, tin washtub that I have some herbs in too---on the patio.
I planted 4 berry bushes that are doing really well. So far the deer haven't noticed them.

I haven't dabbled in the garden since around 5th grade. Tho that year I raised a huge squash that was like 2 feet long and weighed 6 to 10 pounds. Not bad for a little city kid huh?
If I were to put in a garden my choices would be Walla Walla Sweets, yellow onions and purple onions just for some color. Yukon Golds, Reds and purple taters (4 mo color), cherry tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, snap peas, Alfalfa Sprouts and a couple rows of sweet corn. I'd try to grow it as organic as possible using just Alaskan fish fertilizer and manure and black dirt. That's all I need.

So far this year, tomatoes, spinach, and zucchini, and in the herb garden, basil, cilantro, oregano and mint.

24 tomatoes- Cherokee Purple (favorite!), Big Beef, and Mortgage lifters
6 sweet bell peppers
6 Anaheim peppers
6 banana peppers
6 hills of squash
12 hills of cucumbers
7 rows of Mountain half runner beans (80-90' total I'm guessing)
Beans and cukes are climbing. Getting a lot of green tomatoes. Got a late start though from the cooler weather and rain. I started all my peppers from seed this year, which is a first. Need to start earlier next year. Tried to start my tomatoes but lost every one of them. Tomatoes are the only plants I bought this year.

2 cherry tomato plants in pots. Lol. I'd like to have more but my city lot is filled with large trees. Nothing like a fresh picked tomato...
