Vegetables can keep us healthy and fit, not only because of the nutrients they contain, but also because some of them are essential to life. Growing them in the garden keeps you moving. This is said to be the best prevention against disease.

Vegetables can also be grown on the balcony or indoors, for example as microgreens. These are sprouts or a few weeks old young plants grown in a pot or container.

In this part of the site I would like to introduce popular and rare vegetables, some herbs and legumes. You will also find tips on how to use them in the kitchen.
