Oh man this is a fun thread!!
This is my 3rd year gardening but the first year I have gotten anything useful out of my garden I had a ton of peas (omg soooo gooood!), some sugar snap peas and we just got done with broccoli harvest. My family is pretty sick of broccoli atm! I grew Packman variety and boy do they get HUGE heads on them!! I've got some Decicco coming up for a fall harvest, hopefully. Potatoes are flowering now and there are a ton of zucchini to be picked - I think one of my plants must be sitting on a good pocket of compost because it is much bigger than the others. We are also growing carrots (not many, I had trouble getting them to sprout well), onions, lettuce, bok choy, tomatoes (got some itty bitty green ones, so we'll see if they get ripe before the frosts come), purple green beans, and a couple peppers, more tomatoes and eggplant in pots. Eggplant is not happy but oh well. I need to pull up my sugar snap peas and plant some spinach and arugula here soon.

I too am already looking forward to next year!!! DH really wants corn...
