Romaine LETTUCE on the deck. Leaf lettuces grow very quickly and in little space. If you succession plant, sowing seeds every week in a few different planters, you'll create a supply of greens that will be ready in a steady stream all summer. Greens like these are also good for sheltered decks or patios that don't get much sun, since lettuce doesn't like a lot of heat and will grow better during the summer in cool shade. Do this since the deer can't get onto our deck!
Houseplants: rabbit's foot ferns (Davallia fejeensis). are epiphytic, meaning they're adapted to growing in soil-less environments. Try growing on a moss ball in shady corner, making sure it's kept moist. Read about other ferns on our website http://www.gardenersworld.com/plants/search/name/fern/
