Most sought after crops here are lettuces, spinach, and herbs. Most of the plants in this category are leafy, however we are extending leafy to include edible stalks/stems (eg. celery and chard) and swollen stems (eg. kohl rabi) as well. Leaf crops generally appreciate or even prefer some shade; cool moist weather is ideal for these crops, as hot and dry will encourage fast bolting (flowering and seed set), and other qualities not ideal for our eating purposes!
