Edible Heirlooms in Small Pots...

Hello,

Here's my conundrum- I'd love some help! I live in an apartment with an outdoor patio and small backyard portion with a little shade, but mainly sun. The front patio has some shading but only during certain hours of the day. I want to do a little gardening this summer and am conflicted as to what to get. I can only really plant in small pots because the landscaping is not best suited for vegetable-growing and am confined to things that like the sun and do not grow too large.

My goal this year is to grow heirloom vegetables as I grew Hungarian wax peppers and jalapenos last year and loved it so much that I ended up making my own hot sauce. Doing that again would be a real treat for me but I just don't know what's both edible and feasible given my circumstances. Do you guys have any good advice for what Heirloom varieties to grow? If I could somehow wrangle a small tomato variety or a few kinds of peppers that would be amazing. Are there any other veggies that don't mind being pot-bound?
