"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). You might be wondering why we don't stock things that look familiar to you, like spinach kale and lettuce. Well, we do! Just not during the summer. Hearty cold loving greens like kale are best planted in the fall, and even less heat tolerant greens like spinach and lettuce have to wait till winter to be planted in your home garden. The varieties in this collection for summer may not be familiar to you but that doesn't mean they aren't worth growing. Perennial greens are eaten around the world, are easy to cook with, and most importantly, they love our summer climate.
