I've expanded a bit this year, my base is 2 year old compost I fashioned out of spent mash from a local brewmaster I befriended, leaf compost from the town recycling facility, wood chips a tree guy was more than happy to dump in my driveway, shredded garden clippings (no grass!) and newspapers, pre-cooked kitchen waste, sweat and elbow grease.
This year I have the garden area proper, a small patch of squash and containers(recycled from a local landscaper) on the deck . I'm growing tomatoes (Brandywine, Yellow-Striped, Roma and Grape), peppers (Jalapeno, bell, yellow bell), cucumber, eggplant, peas, onion (Walla-Walla, shallots, garlic), Italian beans (bush), green beans (bush), squash (yellow, patty-pan and zucchini), potatoes (white and red), strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, mint, chives, lavender, parsely, oregano, cilantro, thyme, tarragon, sorrel in addition to a couple of grape vines, apple, pear, and peach trees.
So far I had critters dig up the garlic and feast on the zucchini/yellow squash(I've mitigated somewhat with hardware cloth), the shallots are playing hide and seek for some unknown reason, I started the cukes too early so what I have now are directly sown (most of the other vegs were started in my basement in March/April under florescents). The berries and grapes are more a lure for the birds to keep them off other things although we did have a couple of small strawberry harvests so far. The potatoes, grape tomatoes and many of the herbs are in containers on the deck. I think I've finally beaten the sunchokes which I tore out due to borers, they're not so much invasive as they are persistent (now mint is invasive!).
I just harvested these today, they'll probably go into a spring pea risotto this evening (excuse the shitty cell phone pic):
We also belong to an organic farm CSA - my wife and youngest daughter are vegan, my older daughter is vegetarian, the dog, 3 cats and I are carnivorous. Although we're "permitted" to have up to 3 chickens (suburb of NYC) my clan would sooner slaughter me. Needless to say I'm the only egg eater.
Edit:the sunchokes were not running away at the sound of footsteps.... I meant invasive (fix't)
