    Depending on where you live (weather) and how much sun/shade your patio has there are some great patio plants. 

    We have had a lot of luck with: Hot Peppers, Tomatoes, Herbs, Squash, Gourds, Egg Plant, Celery, Lemmon Grass, Cabbage and Ginger.

    Not as much luck with Carrots, Garlic, Onions or Peas but I think that was more to do with the lack of water then anything.

    Incredible Vegetables from Self-Watering Containers by Edward C. Smith is a wonderful resource.
