Greens are the easiest vegetable to grow, 

and give a lot of food from a very small space. 

Often the first fresh food from the spring garden, holding well into summer 

if given shade when weather gets warm. Most greens are more cold-hardy than lettuce, so they are the staples of winter salads. 
Plant them in August for fall salad, soups, and vegetable dishes. 
Be sure to plant them where you pass often, so that you can snip leaves without having to go far on dark evenings. 

They are ideal for containers.
