Vegetable and Herb

These are general-purpose fruit, vegetable, herb (culinary and medical), and spice boards. Cooking, gardening, herbalism, and nutrition are on-topic if they pertain to plants, but so are other things pertaining to plants. If you have a cooking or nutrition post that does not relate to a plant, please post on the General Discussion board instead. Disclaimer: Not all boards pertain to edible plants. Some may have other purposes, and may be toxic. However, boards exist for a large array of edible plants.
