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!

I haven't found much of anything that will prosper in shade except a few perennial flowers. Doesn't take me too long to figure out that I'm too close that tree, shed or building that throws a shadow. Any type containers or Walnut trees, too. Something to do with the roots?

I have found that rhubarb does better in the afternoon shade.
