Here is a montage of what I picked from May to July of this year. Shown here are cucumbers, zucchini, peppers, cherry tomatoes, and tomatillo. All very tasty.

These photos highlight the growing characteristics of both cucumber and zucchini. Cucumber plants vine upward with strong stalks and massive leaves. The flowers produce cucumbers underneath them. Very similar is the zucchini plant, which doesn't vine, but also has strong stalks and massive leaves.  They too begin growing underneath the flower as well.

Zucchini plants are really neat to watch as they grow and produce. Both male and female flowers grow on the same plant, and the male flowers fertilize the female flower, usually through insect pollination. It can also be done by hand with a Q-tip. You can see that the flower eventually falls off of the zucchini before harvesting.

This montage of photos gives a full view of my two larger garden plots. I then zoomed in on the husky cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and tomatillo.  In hindsight, I probably over-planted a bit, as all of the plants are merging together. I get overzealous at the start of each growing season and now barely have walking room between the row of tomatoes and cucumbers. The harvest is still in abundance, so I'll simply make minor adjustments next time.

The photos here show strong progress with the tomatoes, mint, cucumbers, and zucchini. The last photo, which is a marigold plant, is great for natural pest control. I plant these throughout the cinder block sections.
