While it's nice to have a year-round growing season in the Bay Area, the foggy days make for a long lag time between germination and harvest. Other regions, such as the Midwest, enjoy optimal growing conditions for at least three months straight, which yields huge vegetables in a very short amount of time. At long last, though, my garden is starting to produce a lot of veggies. I'm currently picking wax beans, snow peas, grape tomatoes, and my new favorite, serpentine squash, which is also called zuchetta, and has a very interesting anise-like flavor when eaten raw.
