Those tomatoes look great! Mine are still just leaves. Our last frost date was just a few weeks ago and I start everything from seed, though. This year is my first time trying to grow them. I actually just built a new raised garden over the winter and this will be a new experiment in a new climate. I pretty much try to grow any sort of interesting heirloom foods that I think I might enjoy eating, plus some interesting colorful flowers.
So far, I've harvested lots of spinach, a few types of lettuce, and Chinese kale. No luck with the regular kale, broccoli or cabbage due to those horrid caggage worms plus weather irregularities, but I keep trying! I love growing a large variety of carrots and beans in all sorts of colors. Food wise, I am also trying to grow okra, zucchini, two types of sweet peppers, herbs, three types of melon, and pumpkins ... with mixed results. I was lucky enough to inherit raspberries and strawberries when we bought the house. They did amazing last year, so I hope to be so lucky again this year. We had so many raspberries, we barely made a dent in what was growing, even with the help of the bird and bugs.
I also tried all sorts of flowers this year, but the only ones already flowering are the marigolds. My son loves sunflowers, so I try those every year, sometimes with luck and sometimes not.
