Since it's so hard to find a job in this economy, lately I've been focusing my time, effort, and money, on relying less on third parties to obtain food, medicine, and similar necessities. I've been held back by space constraints (in an urban condo with tiny backyard) and time of year, but this is what I'm growing thus far (just plant kingdom):

yams
red, brown potatoes
Hopi Blue flour corn
coriander/cilantro
purple tomatillos
heavenly blue morning glories
jalapenos
multi-color carrots
rutabegas
roman chamomile
pennyroyal
peppermint
tobacco
california poppies
lavender
sugar beets
pineapple
white rose
winter oats
moss
breadseed poppies
poinsettia
mescalun lettuce
spinach
savoy cabbage
onion
garlic
chia
catnip
Indian mustard
valerian
lentils
ginger
winter pumpkins
edamame soy

I also have Arabica coffee, bananas, and pecans germinating, but they may have failed.
Any suggestions for my next edible/medicinal plants?

Good call. But if I eat some psychedelic mushrooms I may believe I'm in Super Mario 2 and start throwing the turnips at people.
