Poll: Vegetables in your garden

Which of the following do you have growing in your garden?
*There are only 10 choices in a poll, so obviously there aren't enough. But, out of those listed, what do you have?

I have mostly tomatoes, but also a few different bell peppers, jalepenos and a couple of other hot peppers, strawberries, mints and basil.

I did not do as much this year as I did last year. Right now I have tomatoes, brussel sprouts, cucumbers, ancho chili peppers, zucchini, squash and lots of herbs.

Edited to add that I forgot I also have beans in my garden. I knew I was forgetting something.

Tomatoes, jalapenos, basil, thyme and rosemary. The basil isn't going to make it. Some critters keep eating the leaves.

Tomatoes, courgettes, peppers, runner beans, french dwarf beans, peas, soft fruits - strawberries, raspberries, black and white currants, gooseberries, loganberries, apples, pears and 3 different plum varieties. Aubergines (for the first time this year - really slow, but I'm not sure that the fruits will grow well in this wet, mild climate - although I started them in the greenhouse! and fennel. Herbs - mint, basil (green and purple) flat leaf parsley, coriander. Other shrubby herbs like thyme and rosemary are permanent fixtures.

what do you use these currants and gooseberries for? Recently they've had red currants as well as gooseberries at my farmer's market but I don't know what I would do with them. I love black currants (I'm a sucker for that black currant juice they sell there in Scotland but I can't find it in the US). Come to think of it, I'm a sucker for Scottish food, especially chocolate biscuits and Scottish sweets.

7 or 8 tomato plants. 2 cherry/grape. A big boy and the rest heirlooms.

Bell peppers, banana peppers, jalepenos and habarneros. The habs may have been done in by the noreaster and the 45 degree temps right after planting. They look ill.

Basil (lots and I have those same bugs, too, Andy), rosemary, cilantro, parsley, oregano, thyme, lemongrass (thanks to the nice DC folks I have loads of it now).

Romaine (eaten), arugula (didnt come up like I had wanted), spinach (i am eating it basically every day), garden cress (was good till it bolted).

Onions. Cauliflower. Turnips.
