10 Things You Can Eat Around Your Home or Garden (But Probably Won’t)

Various Varieties of Vegetables – Infographic

Varieties of Vegetables

With summer just about upon us a wonderful thing is beginning to happen, at least here in South Jersey.  Roadside farmstands are beginning to pop up everywhere!  From the larger farmer’s markets to the simple picnic tables on a front lawn, all of these provide the freshest vegetables and fruits available.  It got me thinking about the wide variety of produce that was actually available and today’s infographic fed that need for me.  With over 400 crops displayed, this large chart shows the wonderful variety available among both the very common and very unusual vegetables that you may see at your own local market.
