    I believe you got the color coding wrong. Green for mild and red for hot. :D

    Or maybe those are the mild ones. :eek:

    Relatives in PEI all do this now. Fantastic idea. Going to find out about it in Ontario.

    Tomatoes, pomegranates, oranges (should be good in January), plums (those are gone now); and trying to grow Satsuma mandarins but the fruit isn't setting. The mandarin tree flowered for the first time last spring, and the fruit started but then disappeared. I haven't had much luck with those.

    I did the farm share (CSA) for years, and it was a great way to eat seasonal produce. I tried so mnay new recipes when I did that.

    Tons of avocados from the tree, none of them edible. The dogs like them when they turn rotten on the ground... :wag::poo:

    Also some apples earlier, but they were pretty woody.

    Rosemary, thyme, oregano, and green onion in the herb garden are low maintenance and do well.

    Grapes. So many grapes. A few apples so far. The tree is still young. Oranges. Limes. Pomegranates. Different types of tomatoes. Jalepenos. Onions. Glorious strawberries. Green beans (realized I'm the only who cares for them). Patty pan squash. Lavendar, rosemary, mint.

    Now starting the winter garden- turnips, chard, carrots, parsnips, kale, and whatever else might stike my fancy.

    Rumor has it that in about 30 days CANADA is going to have a new interest in backyard gardens.

    We have a tiny garden. 1 cherry tomato plant and another on the deck. 1 unknown variety of bigger tomatoes. Many herbs: sage, rosemary, time, tarragon, oregano, mint. too much basil, chives. Catnip for the cats.

    Moving from our garden apt. to a house this fall next year will start a new herb garden and a bigger vegetable garden plus an apple tree or 2.

    Lettuce and spinach (both done earlier, but I've replanted for fall/winter)
    Strawberries and snap peas (also done for the season)
    Carrots and beets, though only a few survived some unknown pest that always gets them
    Kale
    Red cabbage
    Green beans
    Sauce and cherry tomatos
    Cucumbers
    Fennel
    Summer squash of all varieties
    Basil and an assortment of herbs

    I'm still waiting for most of my sauce tomatoes to ripen, it seems to be a theme that I'm harvesting them green in October and window ripening them.
