I live in a loft in atlanta. i finally got the weeds pulled and most of the patio cleaned up!!! I moved in last year and it was too covered with leaves so i left it until i was ready to plant my garden. My poor patio was covered with weeds. I pulled them and discovered that i have two small patches of dirt around the patio. Roughly the two patches together are a little less than the size of the patio. The patio is roughly 8 or 9 by 5 or 6. I have decided i want to plant things there too. One side is covered with very large weeds so i had to spray them down with root killer. The other one is next to the tube that lets out the drains off from the roof. There is moss growing all around it. i would really like things that i can either buy a sprout or throw the seeds out and let them grow. I would like a fruit/ veggie/herb section and a flower section. Because of these two patches of dirt~ i would like to plant a tree too. I have not done gardening for about 4 years so i would like to start slow and with things that are not easy to kill. Any suggestions? thanks!
