"Greens" is a very diverse category of plants that encompasses all plants that produce a green leaf that you eat (instead of say, a seed pod or a fruit). Most greens can be eaten at any stage of growth from sprout (aka microgreen) to baby leaf to full grown and flowering. Arugula is a great example of the versatility in age, harvest & cooking method of a typical green. Arugula can be eaten raw as a microgreen at just 8-10 days old, or planted less densely and harvested "cut and come again" style for baby salad leaves at 21 days old, or it can be planted at 1 plant per square foot and allowed to mature for large spicy cooking leaf production. 

If you're wondering why we have limited selection right now and you don't see many of your favorite greens like lettuce & kale its because the growing season in South Florida for those plants is the fall, winter & spring. Summer growing is very unique and is concentrated mostly on perennial tropical climate plants that may be totally unknown or less familiar to you. We only sell plants that are "season appropriate" so that our customers don't buy the wrong thing and get frustrated when their garden doesn't succeed, so take a look at what we have in stock and we encourage you to try some of these unique varieties in your summer garden.
