I'd say it depends on what you like, what is easy to get at the market, and what will grow in your yard.

For me, other considerations are whether I would have to buy way too much of it at once, or whether a homegrown variety would be a lot better. There's not much space.

What I might be growing this year, aside from nasturtiums and other decorative plants I haven't decided on:

curly parsley
chili peppers
tomatoes (variety depends on what I find that has a short growing season)
pole beans

One caution about mint: I am growing mint because it came with the place & it is hard to get rid of the stuff. It is invasive as all get-out. If you like mint, consider growing it in a container.
