Are you growing your own fruit & veg?

Hello Serious Eaters, I wanted to know whether anyone here grows his/her own fruit & veg? I've never grown anything before, but earlier this year I've managed to get a little patch on my friend's allotment and have sown beetroot, shallots, swiss chard, rockets, etc... And I'm so proud to say that they're all growing (and I have managed to pull out weeds only and leave the edible plants behind)!! Needless to say I'm very excited about this fall.

So, have you got serious green thumbs? What's the best dish you've made out of your own produce? Or have you had a real flop and haven't had a harvest?
