Edibles? Ornamentals? Both? What Do You Grow On Your Balcony/Patio?

Lately I’ve been thinking more and more about converting my flower pots to food pots. I guess the idea of growing your own has really hit the national conscience. I’m curious, what do you all grow on your balcony or patio?

It would be pretty difficult to grow all your own food in such a small space, so do you think growing anything edible is worth it? Or would you rather make your space pretty with flowers and leave the vegetables to farmers? Currently I grow a mix of edibles and ornamentals. A typical container for me has a fruit tree and a combination of herbs and flowers growing underneath.
