Okra, because here in Texas, it grows like a weed. The plants grow tall, and produce lovely, hibiscus-like flowers.
But really, tomatoes, because even though they're tough to get going here, there's nothing like a fresh, home-grown tomato, right off the vine. They're so good, I refuse to buy those sad, tasteless grocery store tomatoes in the winter.
I am in Montana, and while we may have a short growing season, I have done really well with my broccoli and tomatoes. I even re-potted a tomato plant from my garden to save throughout the winter. I am hoping I will keep it producing indoors with proper lighting.
My favourite food to grow at home are potatoes, beans, peas, carrots, beetroots, and Pak Choy or Pechay(Chinese vegetable). I love growing my own vegetables because they taste so good and are so fresh. Nothing beats fresh home grown vegetables.
Herbs! I love growing them. I use them in just about everything I cook and they are just so delicious. When I have more than I can use, I dry them and store them for future use and find it very rewarding.
