Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
so i tent to stick to fresh veggies that i enjoy eating - tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and basil in the summer, beets, carrrots, peas, green onions and cilantro/parsley in the winter. most of the mediterranean herbs (oregano, thyme, tarragon, lavendar, rosemary) have gone native, and act more like weeds than crops. i'm playing with the idea of planting potatoes this winter (we have relatively mild winters, only occasional frosts and very rarely snow) just to see how it goes, and to get a leg up on the rest of the suburbanites if kunstler's doomer peak oil scenario ever pans out.

i'm very lucky in that the previous owners of the house i rent planted several fruit trees, so i get to eat lots of citrus, peaches and what are apparently called "pineapple guava."
