Vegetables are edible plants or parts of a plant (e.g. leaves, stems, or roots).

The term vegetable in common usage tends to refer to a subset of plant parts, excluding grains, legumes, spices and sweet fruits. These vegetables tend to have a mild taste, low calories (usually <35kcal/100grams) and low protein content.

Large scale growing[edit | edit source]

Large scale growing of vegetables depends on automation of many processes. While this is usually includes use of pesticides and herbicides, other principles of gardening can be used to apply permaculture principles on a larger scale. For example, composting can be more efficient on a larger scale, compost tea can spread the benefits of soil microflora across a large area, and mulching can reduce the problems of weeds.
