Bucket loads of cherry tomatoes. We didn't plant the cherry tomatoes in our garden - they just came up, all over. We get big bowls full a few times each week.
Last week Andy gave Tika some cherry tomatoes to see if she would like them. She did, and he thought that was awesome. The next morning I saw Tika eating them straight off the bush. Upon realising that he has competition for his tomatoes, Andy doesn't think it's so awesome anymore.
We got a BBQ, which is fantastic not just because BBQed food is yummy, but because BBQ dinner is quick and easy and doesn't make a big mess.

|BBQ potatoes, garden radishes, garden zucchinis, felafel balls, and corn on the cob.|
|Side salad with tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, nasturtiums and rocket, all from the garden.|
|Chickpea patties. Check those char marks.|
I grew soy beans over the winter, knowing full well they are a cool climate crop and they might not do much. But I knew they would fix nitrogen in the soil even if they didn't produce beans, so they were worthwhile.
And they did produce a tiny crop.
|I got more shells than beans.|
|Edamame salad with cucumber, wasabi, soy and pickled ginger.|
Also, our patio is getting lovelier and lovelier, with the BBQ and the fairy lights, and a quickly growing passionfruit for shade.
