I have a small garden about 15 ft. by 15 ft., I have a few different things going right now. These include tomatoes, one pumpkin plant, some herbs (mostly basil) and, asparagus. What about you guys?

I've got 3 Jalapenos, 4 Green Bell Peppers, some petunias, and 4 cherry tomato plants. I don't think I could do much more; I pretty much have a black thumb.<br><br>
Edit: Forgot, I have two cucumbers growing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I have Parsley, Mint, Rosemary, Chives, Sage, Thyme and Coriander in my herb garden.<br>
I have lettuce, rocket, spinach, radishes, carrots, brocoli, caulis, cabbage, chinese cabbage, brussel sprouts, baby beets, strawberries, snow peas, broad beans.<br><br>
I think that's all!<br><br>
As you may be able to tell from my list of stuff, I am in the southern hemisphere.... so going into winter <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">. Which limits what I can grow at the moment.

I recently started a small herb garden with basil, lavender, oregano, thyme, and rosemary. The basil plants have simply exploded, growing from 4" to over 18"; I can't keep up with it in my cooking. I plan to add some peppers next.

I'm not really responsible for what we grow, it's a family garden so we're all involved. Strawberries, pumpkins & tomatoes.

I have a small plot at our church community garden this year (about 10x 10). We put in 5 tomatoes, 3 cucumbers, and 3 peppers. I'm so excited because the tomatoes are doing great.

Oh, quit your griping. They only stop us from doing things for our own good, you know. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"><br><br>
No gardens this year, but I am growing a little dill and basil, and they're doing very well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I wondered where my boyfriend came from.<br><br><br>
I'm accidentally growing tomatoes in winter. Which is sort of spooking me cos that's not usually gardening law is it! And when I cut the Kale off to use in cooking, it keeps growing back. It repairs itself, just like Captain Jack! Is this normal? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yes! Just cut off the leaves you need and you can keep the plant going for awhile. Same thing goes for lettuce.

Excellent, thanks. I wish I'd planted a lot more now cos it's not all that easy to find where I live.

Our new house has a bunch of cool trees. In our backyard there were some fruits that tasted kind of like peaches, but I found out one of them was actually a nectarine tree, and I forgot what the other was but it had a similar texture and taste of a peach or nectarine, but it was bigger and had a lot less fuzz. They don't seem to have any more fruits, though.<br><br>
In our front yard, there's three trees. One of them has green apples that just appeared recently and are growing well. We picked two buckets of green apples yesterday and the tree still has a lot left and is covered with green apples that are still growing bigger or barely started growing, and there's a lot we can't reach, too. The other tree had some dry shriveled fruits on the ground when we moved in a few months ago so I know it's a fruit tree. It's shedding blossoms everywhere lately, so hopefully it'll grow fruit soon. The third tree in our yard seems to be growing soybeans, as I found some on the ground when we first looked at the house. I'm not sure what to do with those when they grow in but it still looks cool.<br><br>
In our backyard, on the other side, away from the fruit trees, there's also some grape vines that are growing big bunches of grapes right now. They're not ready to be picked yet but they will be soon, which I'm excited for. Most of them seem to be green grapes, but there are some purple ones, too.<br><br>
In pots, we recently planted a pumpkin plant, and my mom found some urva whena (not sure how to spell it, but it's a mint plant) and it was in a bad area of the yard and hardly growing, so we put it into a pot, and now it's growing well. I love making mint tea out of leaves, so I love this plant, too.<br><br>
Edit: Okay, apparently the plant is spelled "Yerba buena" and the name is used in Spanish speaking countries. I'm Mexican and Costa Rican, so I'm not sure what it's called here but it's like a mint plant and it looks like this:<br><img alt="" src="http://www.stuartxchange.org/Yerba.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

Not soybeans. It might be mesquite or carob, both of which are edible and kind of look like soybean pods. The wood from a mesquite tree is a great source of heat in a barbecue.<br><br>
Very cool house! It sounds like a previous owner knew what they were doing. Take care of those fruit trees. Those are a good investment.
