I had 3 jalapeno pepper plants which I took indoors each winter; this was the 3rd year I had them, but I think they're all dead/dying. I was taking cuttings of my tomato plants and growing them indoors each winter, but they might be on their way out too.
One of my co-workers gave me a clump of chives this year which I planted in my herb garden outside; they bloomed and set seed, and I think I'll try planting some of the seeds for indoor growing instead of planting them all outside.
EDITED TO ADD: I adopted a few goldfish from a friend's koi pond 12 years ago. About a week ago, I collected a sample of duckweed to grow indoors; they might like it as a food (not that I'll be feeding them ONLY that)... I'm picking out the snails as I find them and putting them back in the pond a couple of blocks away, where they came from.
