Mammoth snow peas.  Plants have reached beyond 6' at this time and are making tons of large snow peas.

Below that, the beginnings of Chinese cabbage.

Tomatoes are just flowering

2 varieties of hot peppers are starting to bud

Lot of basil

cilantro

mint

Waiting on wild berries that I encouraged the hell out of this year.  Some over 6' at this point

 

have to think about visting the farmers markets soon

Killer snow peas man!

the first year I did them I had some massive plants but the following years have been nothing but a disappointment!

Be careful planting mint in the ground it just goes wild

waiting for my potato plants to die off.

 

My father in law says that basically in the ground is the best spot for them so to just let them die off in spring and harvest a few weeks later to allow all the sugars to go back into the tubers

I have a (fairly) contained patch of mint but I do want to get some spearmint going in there too.  I know about the mint, in the past I've dropped clippings and seeds on some properties as a dick move to the well deserved.

Wild raspberries.  See how many more I get.  As much as I posted, I lost an equal amount to a bright bird.
