What are you growing this season?

If any of you are gardening, what have you planted/will you be planting this spring? In addition to the usual tomatos, peppers, beans, squash, melons, etc. that I planted this spring (I got a late start but better late than never, right?) I decided to tear up some overgrown foundation shrubs (ancient junipers so deeply rooted I had to use my one ton pickup to pull them out of the ground) and an old ornamental tree to make room for an experiment in permaculture--semi dwarf fruit tress underplated with strawberries, all thickly mulched. I guess time will tell how they perform.

So what is everyone else here doing this season? If anything at all?

Adding collards and trying bull's blood beets for a heat resistant green, we will see how well it handles the heat here.

Jay, How do you keep the ants from cutting off the luffa fruits? Every time I have tried to grow them the ants attacked.

Okra, tomatoes, mexi-bell pepper, regular bell peppers, watermelon, cantalope, onions, parsley, cilantro, purple basil, garlic, garlic chives, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet corn, squash, and one orange tomato. I'm probably leaving out something but this is all I can think of right now.
