I don't see why not? The sun is the best light source for plants. I would keep an eye on the temperature of the water though if you plan to plant outside.

Just be aware, the sun is a LOT of light compared to even the brightest tank fixtures, and it can be hard to keep algae under control if you're growing them submersed in sunlight.
