Can you Garden in the Shade?

Hello! I wanted to start a small garden on my balcony, but I do not get direct sunlight (balcony faces the north). Are there any good plants that grow well in the shade. I had to give my tomatoes to a friend so they could produce. Thanks!

For a balcony, I would try salad greens.

One summer I was able to buy more preps, because we had home-grown salad several times a week. In the early stages I was only able to add a few leaves to our bought lettuce, but as time went by the salad plants were a foot tall, and I was able to reduce the vegetable bill to very little.
