Vegetables are a type of plant product that are normally used for human consumption as a side dish to main courses, or in the preparation of various dishes.
They are mainly composed of water, varying from '80% to 95%, as well as trace amounts of sugars and moderate amounts of vitamins and fibre.Garden plants naturally mature in certain seasons, kitchens peas and zucchini come in spring, tomatoes and green beans in the summer, cauliflower and pumpkins in the autumn and then spinach and thistles in winter.Yet we enjoy most vegetables in every season and in all months of the year.This is possibly due to the fact that the vegetables, or at least most of them, have a short life, that is, complete their life cycle generally within a few months and in certain cases, within a few weeks. The same vegetables are cultivated in large gardens for most of the year. Of course there are some expedients.In different fields of the garden several species alternate, on different fields the same vegetables alternate, so you have a continuous production of the same products.Because many species are forced to develop into a season they would not normally develop in, they must be sow in particularly fertile land to accelerate their growth, as well as being planted in sheltered beds or even in greenhouses. Vegetables comprise of root vegetables, carrot, turnip, scorsonera, leaf vegetables, celery, parsley, fennel, bulb vegetables, onion, leek, garlic, vegetables, fruit, bean, tomato, pea, perennials, asparagus, artichokes, rosemary, and sage.
