Growing Leafy Salad Vegetables

There is little more satisfying than growing your own leafy salad vegetables. Healthy, fresh and sustainable. Having an abundant supply of salad leaves available in your own garden is both rewarding and satisfying.
This ebook helps you understand how to grow common and some more unique leafy salad vegetables.

Vegetable leaves are an important part of the human diet. They are eaten fresh in salads or on sandwiches. They may be preserved (e.g. Sauerkraut) or cooked and eaten as a hot vegetable. Leaves provide a wide range of critical nutrients in the human diet which are generally not found in adequate quantities in other types of food. They also provide fibre which is critically important to the health of the digestive system.
