I picked my first tomato yesterday.  It was an orange rapture.  I took some seeds from tomatoes I bought in the supermarket last year. 

Sugar snaps, broad beans and purple sprouting have provided a few meals and I picked my first courgettes yesterday.  Chillies and peppers are coming on well.  I was behind with planting my French and runner beans and am still waiting for flowers.  Plenty of male flowers on my squashes but no females yet.  Cucumbers are just forming but are only 2 or 3 mm long yet.

I have sixty or more tomato plants.  Some are in the greenhouse and some in pots outside.  I still have some to pot up but I may have to be selective and dump a few.

I've not had one courgette yet from my plants. Only male flowers so far. How can I encourage them to mate!

harvested about 7 large courgettes / small marrows and there are tons more forming on my 3 plants, i can see tomatoes forming in greenhouse but they have all fallen forward and i need to tie them all back up (been 2 hot to go into greenhouse for long) so i might find more as i tie the plants up :) Just harvested a large bag of shallots (may have early sign of onion rot on a few so need to look at this in better light). Garlic may be ready for harvesting in that i have a good sized blub but the green leaves have not fallen yet so will wait :(
