Peas, radishes, mustard greens, and maybe teeny-tiny lettuce + potatoes are up. I've also planted spinach, green onions,  + Swiss chard. Waiting to plant beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, thyme, and dill.

Wow ..  Good luck .. 

Presently, I am  growing my favorite  Genovese basil, Italian parsley, thyme, rosemary, lavender,  majoram, oregano and a  tiny lemon tree on my terrace ..  ( I have to take them in, during the autumn and winter ) ..  

And cactus that do amazingly well in our dry climate ..  Though we have had rain and low temperatures ( 13 centigrade for 2 weeks ) ..  

Have a super summer and all my best wishes ..

Today I planted peas, Swiss chard, turnip tops, and a mix of assorted greens, mostly lettuce and Korean mustard. (I usually get my seeds at the local Garden + Flower Show, which didn't happen this year, so I'm planting leftovers from last year, sprouty potatoes, and the herb seeds that a co-worker gave me for Christmas.)

For various reasons we're not doing a full garden this year.  But I've got a few things going in large tubs.

Put in a bunch of onion sets, planted close for scallions. That took up half of a tub.  The other half is in baby carrots.  In another tub is going a cherry tomato plant.  I put in several heads of bibb lettuce, using the cavities in the cinder blocks framing the herb bed.

That, and the herbs, will probably be all we put in this season.

Margi, there are a number of tomato varieties developed specifically for container growing on terraces and the like.  I don't know what's available in Europe, but you might want to look into it.
