What are the best Southern vegetable garden plants?

I live in South Mississippi, what type of vegetables are best suited for my area?

The classics are okra, sweet potato, corn, peppers, tomatoes. They all love hot weather. All the cool season stuff -- lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, etc -- works well there too, planted in fall or early spring.
