What garden edible is now in season?
I had to choose other. Asparagus is winding down but the berries are still being pollinated (tons of bees). I suppose some folks have lettuce coming on, but mine was planted late so is just popping out of the ground.
Lettuce is bolting, but artichokes are still yielding. Had the first raspberry this week! Lots of herbs.

We're with you Jen, herbs!! Our lettuce is still going strong too because we keep cutting it. We're also harvesting strawberries and even a few asparagus.
Strawberries. My blueberry bushes have berries but they aren't ripe yet.
i've been harvesting okra, summer squash, cukes, cilantro, snap peas, five different kinds of lettuce and beans, all from the neighbor's huge garden. corn didn't do well; tomatoes aren't ripe yet. it got so hot so early.
in my own garden, figs are almost ripe and i'm still eating oranges off the trees.
the neighbor has jolted me into finally starting to plan my own vegetable garden. i'll be getting it ready now so i can plant for late fall/winter crops.
Our peas are almost done. Squash is starting to set fruit. Tomatoes are still green, they will ripen towards the end of June. Garlic will be pulled soon, followed by onions. The persimmon and fig tree are loaded with fruit. Melons are beginning to set fruit thanks to the bumblebees. Bush beans have lots of leaves, but no flowers.
Birds ate all the blueberries, as usual (sigh)
Voles have eaten most of our sweet potato slips and have now started on the parsley. If anyone has a way of getting rid of these pests, please let me know.
My dad had a wooden frame with netting set up over our blueberries to keep the birds from eating them all
Just about everything is ready to pick here. I just got back from picking loquats. They are growing wild in a field a couple of miles from the house and are nice and ripe and sweet. Brought home a bag full to munch on and share with my grandson.
Lettuce and greens; herbs and radishes...and LOADS of peas - snap and snow. Yum!
They had taste testing of blueberries and blackberries in a grocery store a few days ago so I voted for those... figured they were trying to push the ones they would have a big supply available. Watering restricitons here prevent us from having gardens of any kind here.... bummer!
Been munching away at the blueberries on my bush, my tomato plants are now in bloom, and the bell pepper is starting to show that it is creating flower buds!
We are in between. Strawberries and Asparagus are over. We're waiting for the squash and tomatoes, and then the peppers. Everything is doing better than last year, so I am hopeful for the gardening season this year.
Tomatoes and peppers are doing well right now. Picked a tomato yesterday that was low on the plant... the turtles had already taste tested it!
Asparagus, broccoli, lettuce and spinach are done. The blueberries and strawberries are just starting to color up, though not quite ripe yet. The tomatoes were just recently planted so I am a long way to harvesting any here.
Frozen carrots, onions, leeks, radishes , garlic shoots, anything I can dig from under the snow!!!lol
We ate at a fresh-picked tomato from the garden tonight for dinner. Broccoli produces right through winter here and I'm planting more salad greens this week.
It has been freezing the last few weeks, but so far my lettuce, under row cover have survived. I just cut a few this afternoon for salad.
