I have killed cacti before that have been in my care. And those air plants that don't need watering—they just will not cooperate for me. Sometimes my best attempts to grow things come from the sprouted onions and potatoes in my bottom kitchen drawer that I salvage, put in a pot and surround with dirt. Hey, if they want to grow under my care, why shouldn't I encourage them?
We live in a town house and don't have a yard; however, every year I put together a ramshackle deck garden and have become quite proud of my meager results.
We received a few herbs from our farm share box and they're doing ok. The mint especially seemed to enjoy the wet weather.

My lopsided citronella plant. I got a slip from Trotters several years ago. It's a resilient plant which is just what I need.
Morning Glory in the early shadows.
My two tomato plants. Last year my tomatoes became squirrel snacks until I sprinkled them with cayenne. I had no trouble after that.
