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

    Or maybe those are the mild ones. :eek:

    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.

    I've got a huge tomato plant just waiting to spring a butt-load of nice product. There is a short late-season warming trend that should take me riiight up to that point... Then I'll lose them all! :(

    Ahh gardening.

    Lemme see..

    3 types of cucumbers
    Zucchini
    Pumpkins
    Garlic
    2 types of onions
    jalapenos
    red/green/yellow bell peppers
    roma and san marzano and cherry tomatoes
    heritage and normal carrots
    Acorn and butternut squash..
    peas, green and yellow beans

    Then there is fruit..
    raspberries, black raspberries, blue berries, elderberries, mulberries, strawberries, black currants
    european and north american prune plums, 4 types of apples which aren't mature enough yet for fruit (wolf river / holstein / purple passion and another one i forget)
    sour cherry, bing cherry, and 2 shrub cherry varieties.. oh and bartlett and bosch pears and a peach tree
    some variety of blue grape that came with the property.. and i've added a few different red and green table grapes, along with concorde and a white wine grape..
    Oh and can't forget the sugar maples.. :)

    I still want to plant a pawpaw (some northern banana type fruit), maybe another 2 or 3 peach trees, some thimble berries (large black berry) some more maples and..... who knows what else..

    A bunch of the fruit goes to wine.. because.. it'd be a shame for it to go to waste :)
