From their versatility to their abundance of nutrients, stem vegetables are a delicious and healthy choice to add to your garden. The term ôstem vegetablesö might be new to you, but they are quite literally the edible above-ground stems of plants which are treated as vegetables. From asparagus to leeks, celery to rhubarb, you can enjoy vegetables that are entirely edible with little waste, a great option for sustainable living! Grow stem vegetables preferably in full sun, though they will tolerate partial shade.
