Seasons and edible parts of a plant

There are 2 main growing seasons in LA, hot and cool or summer and winter. In hot weather, we grow a lot of fruiting plants like tomatos and squash. On the winter, we grow a lot of leaf and root vegetables like lettuce and radishes. Pictured are collards, onions, fava beans, and swiss chard.

I love gardening because I love good food and being outside.  The most delicous food is the food you grow yourself, and the best times in life are spent in nature.
