I watch Dave Chappelle’s Inside The Actors Studio once every month or two. It’s one of my favorite interviews ever.
Out of her whole catalog, this is my favorite FAVORITE Alicia Keys song.

This looks terrifying and complicated.
Most plants can be patio grown - potatoes are easy (look up sack grown potatoes - you train them vertically) and corn is actually surprisingly adept if you get those long square pots. (Eg: around our back door in pots and planters? We have three different types of chillis, chives, a dwarf lemon, dwarf lime, dwarf nectarine, perennial basil, perpetual spinach, strawberries, coriander, genovese basil, rosemary, catgrass and catnip)
The only ones you really don’t want to patio grow are shit like sweet potato, pumpkins and watermelons as they will go bananas everywhere. I mean, you can do it, but it’s a jurassic park sort of situation as you’ll be fighting the plants all over the place as they tendril.
Also: Basil. Grow lots of basil. It works marvelously as a mosquito repellant as well as tasty snackage. If you want it year ‘round (the most common - genovese - is annual) try the perennial variant that they’ve crossbred with mint. (Well I assume it’s mint. They don’t actually say but me and every other gardener that’s looked at it and the way it grows has said “there’s fucking mint in there somewhere)
For those of you heading into winter, time to get the garlic, onions and other alliums going. Depending on your climate zone, potatoes are also an option, as well as peas and beans because peas and beans don’t give a shit about seasons. In some areas, variants of cauliflower also like to get their nibs in, as do some pumpkins (Kabocha in particular, also known as “Japanese pumpkins”)
