What are easy-to-grow veggies for pots, and that won't need trellises?

last month

Hi everyone. I'd like to try growing some veggies in a raised planter. Because the planter is raised AND on a rooftop (where wind is an issue), I don't want anything that will require a trellis (as I have no way to sufficiently anchor or secure the trellis...)

So, what would you recommend that's easy to grow on a sunny rooftop in Zone 7 (NYC), that doesn't need much space, nor a trellis? I'm thinking a variety of lettuces and maybe scallion. Any suggestions beyond that? I'm already doing a variety of herbs....
