First veggies from the garden tonight. Had some steamed cabbage, broccoli, squash and zucchini. Plus some fresh cornbread. Some pics of how the garden is coming:

Wow, what a difference location makes. My corn is maybe 1/3 the height of yours. I'll be out putting up fencing later this week. Damn rabbits keep eating my plants. Had some lettuce starting to come in. Not so much anymore.

My garden is the worst it's been in as long as I can remember. A cool spring and one heck of a rainy late spring-early summer has taken it's toll. It's still been raining here about every day and has been for weeks now. My squash and zucs have rotted and are gone. My cukes are mis-shapen and are suffering from under pollination. Probably because they're continually spray for mosquitoes and they're killing every other insect in the process. Tomatoes have fruited a little, but the wet ground nearly drowned two of them a couple of weeks ago. Just sad. No one else's garden around here is doing much better. On the upside, my grass is growing like I've never seen it. Problem is, I don't eat it and I'm not starting now.

Our garden is in almost as "ugh" stage as Jamie's.
It just sat through all of June, never moving an inch. Too much cold and rain. The last week it bolted pretty nice with all the heat and then it got beat to death with hail yesterday. That'll set it back while it heals.
Plants aren't dying, but with our short season we'll be lucky to see much of anything if the weather isn't optimal for the next 8 weeks.
Good thing we're not relying on the garden to stave off starvation or I'd be a nervous wreck.

Mine's flourished as of late. My corn shot up quite a bit and I'm noticing the ears are starting to grow. I've got tomatoes on all my plants (4), eggplant and squash (already ate a couple small ones, plus some blossoms). I noticed cuc's yesterday too on my couple of plants and my broccoli is getting gigantic, but no crowns yet. Now if my garlic can be saved, i'll be really happy.

Wow, so sorry to hear that guys. I can feel ya, because I would be mortified if my garden took a dump.
We had been suffering from lack of rain around here and was watering almost every day. I took the family to the lake for 5 days and came back to everything exploding! Most things had doubled in size. We also got 1.5 inches of rain while I was gone which really helped. Not to mention that I sprayed everything down with Compost Tea before leaving on my trip.
We have been harvesting Cuc's, Zuk's & Broccoli and all of our Greens (chard, collard etc.) tomotoes and peppers are starting to set pretty well. The watermelon and cantaloupes are going crazy.
I will try to record another garden video this weekend and post it here. Good luck guys.

Here's my porch garden. I hurt my back in January and couldn't build the raised garden I wanted this year but I'll probably get to build it this summer.
Right now I have basil, rosemary, cilantro, tomatoes, an avocado, and an easter lily that I thought was dead but has made a come back.

Hope your back gets better soon. I am in the same boat with a back injury and 2 herniated discs in my neck. It sucks!
Good job making due with what you can.

Shame y'all are having a tough year. Mine's been going great so far (SE PA). The first tomatoes should be ready in the next few days, with plenty more nice looking fruit not far behind. Picked my first pole beans yesterday despite the best efforts of a swarm of hungry japanese beetles, and my early garlic is drying in the basement. Peppers seems a little slow, just starting to flower now, but they fought off an early insect problem too and seem happy at the moment. Zucchini is growing well, though I've lost a few to what looks like blossom end rot? Does zucchini need calcium like tomatoes or is this something else? They grow about 6" long, and then turn yellow and go soft from the blossom end.

I"m having the same issue with my yellow squash. Had a few that started to rot on the blossom end. Not sure what it might be, my first time growing yellow squash.

Still raining here on the East Coast. Been raining for nearly 3 weeks. Like pouring piss out of a boot most days. The only things that remain are peppers and tomatoes. Getting a few of each. Like Scott said, I'm glad my garden doesn't sustain us throughout the year. At my production rate, I would've had to plant 50 acres and I'm pretty sure I'd be sick of tomatoes at about the 10th month.
