Harvest Time Has Begun

I have been starting to harvest some of the various vegetables that I have grown. I got my first tomatoes off the vine. My baby brocolli has produced quite a bit. I have pulled a few sweet peppers and have a lot more on the vine...just awaiting for them to change color and get sweeter. My oregano and basil are doing great as is my two Stevia plants. I am awaiting for my sweet onions to get bigger along with my small batch of baby carrots. My bannana peppers have grown really big but they are not quite as sweet as I though they would be and they have a little different flavor profile from what I expected from a "sweet" pepper. Veronica and I really did not care for the flavor so I know a few people that would love to have some. I am getting close to harvesting some of the corn that I am growing. It will be a week or two at the most before we will get to bite into some homegrown sweet corn. Yesterday I had trim off some of the large zuchinni leaves and branches. By trimming the big leaves of this plant I discovered a rather large zuchinni. I measured it and it was approximately 11-12".
Below are some photos of different plants that are either in pots on our deck or in my actual garden in the backyard:



 Gold zucchini
 Baby broccoli






 11 inch zucchini
