Lettuce.  Sow some lettuce seeds and watch them grow.  Good for shaded areas.  You can usually get 2-3 crops of lettuce in a Toronto summer.

Beans.  These also grow easily, but you’ll need stakes to make sure you get optimal results.

Swiss Chard.  Like lettuce, sow these seeds, sit back and watch.  Harvest the leaves as they grow.  New leaves will grow back.

Mint. Mint grows quickly and can quickly take over a garden.  Some might consider it a weed.  Good if you love mojitos.
