How does your garden grow?

We have planted a garden again this year and have been enjoying some of the fruits of our garden for a few weeks now. We've had about 40-50 cucumbers already (anybody want one?!) and a few grape tomatoes and strawberries. I was quite impressed last week when I was able to make a Greek cucumber, tomato, bean and olive salad with the first two ingredients right from our garden. And we even had fresh oregano for the dressing. Right now we're excited about watching two small watermelon grow, almost daily you can see them change in size. At the moment they are about the size of a large grapefruit. We love our garden, for complete novices we've been fortunate to start off well.
