Just harvested my first collards and strawberries today! Delicious! Does anyone else have anything yet?

Well after a VERY SLOW start my garden is making some progress thanks to the now hot weather. My rhubarb is huge, lots of chives and shallots ready to eat. The rest is plugging along, I think I should have some edible radishes soon.
I'm quite stoked because I finally got the garden arbor I always wanted as an entrance to my side yard/herb garden/shady spot, and I planted two climbing roses on either side. In a few years it should look so beautiful.
My Garden last week. I've been taking pictures every Monday lately so I'll have some new ones in a couple days. Already the garden has grown so much this past week! I guess it loved the heat wave we were having and thankfully it was able to hold on until our big rain last night. We don't have an outdoor house yet and I didn't want to water by hand.
I have too many radishes and have started to give them away. I planted them throughout the 'root' bed because I read they're good at keeping pests away. I'm thinking of just letting some of them go.
The zucchini plants tripled in size this week, all the other squash plants are doing great, the corn is getting taller and fuller, potatoes are begging to be hilled. I have some work to do this weekend now that it's cooled off...
