“I was doing time for armed robbery when I found out that my daughter had been killed. Her and my son-in-law had been doing hallucinogens, and he was choking her because that is supposed to make a better orgasm, but he cut off her air too long and ended up killing her. Instead of calling the police, he sat on her body for three days then dumped it behind a 7-11. I was so angry when they called and told me, I pulled up a footlocker that was bolted to the ground. I’m skinny but I’m strong as hell. My wife couldn’t take it, and she OD’d. They found her in the bathroom with one hundred empty bags of heroin. She’d fallen in the bathtub and hit her head on the soap dish. When they called and told me that, I tried to hang myself with my bedsheets.”

i should do one of these gardens in charlotte

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”)
