I didn't take any photos of our harvests yet. we pulled up all the onions and garlic. picked some oregano, green beans, peppers, zucchini, eggplant and cukes so far. no ripe tomatoes yet

 

That's about the same as what I've been doing. Got some corn, and great carrots. What do I do with nearly 200 onions (red, white/yellow)?
 
depending on the variety, some onions will keep for 6 months to a year in cold storage.

I planted some onions too late last spring and they withered in the heat. But they perked back up this winter and seem to be surviving the frost. Don't seem to be getting big though but maybe when the soil starts to warm up... 

TL;DR: I'm a shitty gardener

So pleased to harvest a yellow zucchini! Our housekeeper at work gave me one last year, and it was so good I got some seeds. Can't wait to tell him!

Got a dozen (!) tomato plants that are about to produce - but I think birds come eat most of it.

Corn is tasseling! and lots of kale still left to pick.

Biggest problem is the varmints coming to eats everything. Makes me want to throw some sort of giant dome/greenhouse thing over it all.

 
we have a big ol' groundhog in the neighborhood. we've lived here 25 years, never saw one before. I hope he's not too hungry.

I couldn’t get any of my seeds (squash, zucchini, cucumber, cantaloupe) to germinate so I went to a sale and bought seedlings of all those. Then something (probably a ground hog) nibbled the leaves off the cuke and cantaloupe. Left the squash and zucchini alone. I put a small fence around the bed with the cucumber and cantaloupe. Was lucky to get a couple tomatoes from a friend because the late freeze made everyone have to buy double. I’ve got some babies on the mater plants. And I’m trying some seeds for Sugar Cube cantaloupe and yellow zucchini. We’ll see. It’s super dry here right now, so I’m having to water ... everything.

I have zero chances to garden where I live (except perhaps some indoor grow lights and such), so any pictures y'all could post would be most appreciated and savored and envied.

it's time to drag this thread out of the dirt!
We were going to cut back the gardening this year. it's getting to be too much work. But with the pandemic starting in early spring, and the prospect of unemployment and extra time, we decided to go full on victory garden.
We had a cold wet spring with some late frosts, so it got planted about 2 weeks late. But we are now starting to harvest. The garlic is drying in the basement, onions are ready to pull up and I've been picking green beans for about a week now. I got a  few long frying peppers too. No ripe tomatoes yet.
Did anyone plant a Victory Garden this year?

It's only offered periodically, so I recently took the quick drive over to Half Moon Bay and the Ouroboros Aquaponics Farm.

Really impressive stuff. They repurposed a previous greenhouse with their equipment, and have been there about 7+ years, which is more than most of the local farms. The owner is really good about making sure that every aspect, including waste products, have some monetary value to someone so they recoup most of their investment.

Since the water circulates, he figures he could be asked to cut back on water use 85% of his allotment and it wouldn't matter in terms of output. Other farmers would be out of business immediately.

Also, all organic, fresh, and healthful. He supplies to Benu in SF and a lot of other local restaurants. He confronts us all: "WHO is your farmer?" and if you don't know, then you figure it's Monsanto with their RoundUp covered plants that no amount of washing can make clean.

Here's some info and video. I was considering setting up some of the system in the backyard and now my wife is going to harass me until I actually do. She was very much sold on the idea.

Funny thing. I think if I still have tomatoes in July I am doing good. Been very mild weather, but the heat is coming on in Texas. Okra and peppers is all that will produce much going into the dog days of summer. Though I have some small golden cherry  tomatoes that still get a few. Garlic all harvested. Sweet potatoes in a few weeks. All a 10X14 space, plus a few around the pool  is all the space I got. beans have been so plentiful actually had to jar some (9 quarts). I forget how to post pics here.

 
I pulled up the garlic a couple of weeks ago. they're curing in the basement. the onions are just starting to fall over now.
I have oregano and thyme growing in the landscape gardens. it's a nice ground cover.

Today's harvest is  6 zucchini and a boatload of cucumbers  Probably 15 lbs.
