When we downsized to the mobile home, of course the garden got downsized too. Right now We've got Yellow Crookneck Squash, Watermelon, and Armenian Cucumbers. Those are all in a 4'X4' cedar planter box. Also in smaller boxes we have Chives and Rhubarb. Those come back every year and don't have to be planted. We have Roma, Mortgage Lifter and San Marzano tomatoes, Rosemary, Mint and several types of Basil, all in pots. Nothing ready to pick yet, but all the plants are looking good.

Edit: Forgot about our Anaheim Chili Peppers and Poblano Peppers. One plant of each in pots. They'll get chopped up and frozen to use in next winter's Chili.

Locally supplied produce stand is doing great. First peaches of the season today. YUM.
Also heirloom tomatoes and summer squash. Delicious.

Planted the first weekend in May, and my garden is way behind.
The tomato and pepper plants have maybe doubled in size from when planted and not even close to producing.
Not idea what the hell happened this year.

We've had some spinach and broccoli, but that's it so far.

My green thumb got up and went, best thing I grow now is crab grass. My son has a pretty good size herb garden (no, no pot, still flying), mint, dill, oregano, some teas, and several basil's. He grows this one purple basil that he minces up and flavors his gin & tonics.
