To some extent you can eat fresh food year round but one must adapt one's diet to the food available in the season and that can take some getting used to after growing up in our society. Heck, it can be challenging to figure out how to prepare some of the lesser known veggies when most of the population has no idea what they are.

I think one could grow more plant life per space in a hot, rainy environment: i.e. rain forest. The plant life is returned back to the soil at roughly the same rate it is used. Thus attaining equilibrium.

just a guess, imo it will not last longer in overall measurements like growing days or season is my bet, if you can harvest a tomato all year like 3 regular crops i figure that uses 3 times the nutrients and maybe with the extra strength sunshine maybe 4 times the yield? also tropical dry seasons would likely slow system nutrient use overall but then there is less leaching, i seem to be rambling it seems like apples and oranges, best to do what suits where you are and what you like.
