[I love the colorful cacti! I hope to have a lot of them in my little tabletop garden.]
I'm domestically challenged. I can barely cook, don't know how to sew, and kill plants.
Enter this bare patio table in front of our apartment:
[Our mini front patio]
We don't really sit at this table, it's wobbly and the chair is uncomfortable, and I've only used it for projects that involve paint and other toxic substances. But the other night when we had my friend over for dinner, she brought a housewarming gift: an herb garden. Hmmmm...Maybe that table has a purpose after all? Maybe...I can be ambitious and have a tabletop garden so people visiting will see what a domestic superstar *cough* I am. Yes? Yes!
I'm scared, so I might start with succulents because they seem easier to take care of than fragile flowers. Normally anything green makes me panic, but I'm kinda excited. It might even mean I can proliferate that table with ceramic woodland creatures:

And we all know I just do things so I have a chance to buy cute woodland figurines.
Do you garden? Does anyone garden from the confines of an apartment? Any tips for me?
