Planting season is in full swing in much of the northern hemisphere! What do you have growing? What's going in soon? Harvesting anything?

How is fall going for anyone in the southern hemisphere? Anyone still harvesting?

Basically, how are your plants?

I live in an apartment so everything I grow has to fit on the balcony. My basil didn't survive the winter so I bought some sweet basil, purple basil, and dill earlier this week. I tried propagating what was left of my old basil plant so we'll see if it takes root. I also have parsley and cilantro plants that have been doing really well so far and I'm impressed with how much I've been able to harvest in a little over a month. I had a lot of issues with squirrels eating my tomatoes before they were ripe last year so I decided to stick with herbs but I'm wanting to do some bell peppers or something next year. Oh and I saw a few seedlings that sprouted in my outdoor pots so I'm going to wait until they're a decent size and plant them in their own pots. One of them is a helicopter seed so I'm thinking they're probably maple trees since that's basically the only thing that could have made it onto my balcony.
